Many thanks to you! I feel like I opened a treasure chest! You set my mind to rest and gave me much to think about. I just finished printing off everything and am starting to organize it. This will make good airport reading, and of course, I will be digesting all this stuff while at Mom and Dad's house. You do good work!
