Whoops I made a huge blunder !!!!
In no way did I mean to send this to the list !!!
I use thunderbird mail program for both my email and monitoring the list
and I accidently sent to that list rather than a particular person who
agreed to help me with this.
So please feel free to ignore this post - Sorry to the list.
PS - I suppose it could have only been worse had it been meant for some
internet girlfriend or something.
