Hey, Bill, I couldn't see your smile... :-)
If you add <gr> or :-) or otherwise indicate humor it makes
it easier for list readers to tell what your intentions are....

Hee, hee. I'm pretty sure folks that have been reading my
replies to the list for a while are giggling at the suggestion
that I *don't* have an off-the-wall sense of humor.... :-)
What of my "famous" :-) "Why Did the Chicken Cross the
Road" Tech Writer Version (TM)? How soon the list forgets...
Sigh...

Your welcome very much. I enjoyed it. Your praise
warms the cockles of my heart, although I'm not sure
what cockles are. :-) (I'm not trying to start a
"cockles" thread.... No, no, don't start a "cockles"
thread....! Arrrgh!)

P.S.
I apologize to the list for not replying to Bill directly.
I just want to take this moment for a recommendation
for folks to add their email addresses to their signatures.
I don't know if MS Mail is the only mailing program
that strips the mail address of the original sender and
replaces it with the list address, and I also don't know
how many people are, like I am, stuck with MS Mail
as their mail program at work or home. However,
I do know that I, personally, cannot reply to individuals
unless they email me directly or include their email
address in their mail message <sob>....
