Dear Billie,

In the past, someone complained about my post length and having to read 
the same things over and over.  I have wanted to be in harmony with the 
desire of the List, as far as use is concerned.  That is why I attempted 
to end the post.  I believe I understand.  So if the post evolves, no 
one will think that it is I who am keeping it alive after the problem is 
solved.  Thanks.  I just don't want to offend my favorite source for help.
