      more than grateful to have it. As I mentioned on another thread, I
      having real hard time to figure out what is the right structure to
      price because from country where I come from, there isn't a market
      for this thing yet. I am alone here and crying for help! So forum
      like this one and ppl like you can really do great help. Thanks
