Ugh! I can't get the tutorial to work on my Mac. It says to click "next" but there are no buttons at all! Oh well - I'm doing it as a field test next week. :confused:

If you can wait...

I'd suggest waiting until mid-to-late-September! They get marked down cheap at Target and Walmart! :o You can probably get enough for this year AND next year!

I still have my GS sit-upon from many moons ago! :)
