    Tink, you pixie, how've you been. You know, I have zero resistance to cheesecake. I will try this variation very soon. In the meantime hi-5 from theoldprof. If I don't hear from you before the 25th, I will take this opportunity to wish you and yours a safe and happy holiday season, and a prosperous new year.
