    Thanks Flavia!! Today is my Friday so I’ll give it a try tonight 🙂 I’ve been looking for a reason to try out agave nectar.

    Also, awesome name choice for your next program! The success I had with your first program and the use of the word “curve” for this one make me VERY excited for it.

    Thanks for all your hard work!
