    I'm sure it will blow over soon, and I certainly won't allow it to 
put a damper on my goals and achievements for Tedrico's Page! Thanks for 
responding!  Now that makes 3 responses from a posting that should have 
conjured up mass response.  Oh well, they will all learn the value of 
membership, love, and brotherhood amongst discussion group lists 
eventually!  Meanwhile, I'll continue to do my thing, you continue to do 
your thing, If I say tomato, then you say tomOto, and so on!  Nuff said.
