Please tell me where money was ever mentioned in anything that I said?
This is NOT about money at all.
I can only speak for myself and not the original poster when I say this.
But if you look at the original post, that person never mentioned money.
I stand firm in my convictions and what information I have offered you.
To the negative posters, I have to say, you are all living proof that

Oh, and Dave, floundering and saying that the principals of cockatiel
