Dog-gone it, Jon. I got so involved in reading a couple of these and in following imbedded links and links at THOSE pages that I not only spent over half an hour online when I SHOULD be at the grocery store, but I got lost out there and had to check my computer's "History" button to remember where I started!

This might be partially attributable to personal mental lapses I've been experiencing lately. Sigh.

But I had fun and I learned. So my grumblings here could probably be ignored. ;~)
