Yes, I do know what to do about it, and have done so. I appreciate ALL of
the good responses to my post so far. My hope is simply that by sharing
some of our feelings, we can encourage them to be a tad more attentive to
our needs. Few of us here wish to bash our friends at Sevierville. I want
to continue to support them, but they will need to step up if that is to
happen. Besides, the list has been too quiet!
