No kidding? I don't have that problem. I'm certainly aware of my short comings.

Rowena- right on the money, as usual. Happy Anniversary .... don't know how to say that italian.

Kay- there's also a reverse Dunning-Kruger Syndrome, too, which is almost an admirable trait. Remember Paul Potts on Britain's Got Talent.
