Kenneth,

What am I using sessions for?
I hang on to the data in sessions for easy access that allows me to not have 
to always query a db.

Isn't  the point of sessions to carry data from page to page?
Yes, that is one good use for them. There are many.

What do you plan on using them for?

Thanks

Jeff
