NO! not a tinker person, No, not noticed any who did so much tinkering as you mentioned.
Yes, Monica, do it your way and enjoy. The perfectionests (sp?) are enjoying themselves as best they can (RE: Adrian Monk), but, perhaps, not relaxing as we define relaxing.
Edit PS: It took me a minute or two, to figure out what you were talking about. I had read the title
of the topic as Ever encountered on of "those" Rivers, Or, ummm, are you one of them?
Keep trying to find out what kind of RIVER.
But there have been studies showing how we fill in places to make words work when we quickly read, or leave out extra extra words to make a sentence work....but as in this care, it does not alway work out correct. Oh, no, am I tinkering too much. Sorry!
