I am sorry.  I have so much that I am not sure of yet while working, I don't 
always check back to those pages.  It takes a while for me to remember things 
anymore.  In fact just remembering the things you sent is not a front lobe 
event yet.  I am getting better, though.  In a very short time, you can get a 
wall full of postits when you have my memory problem.  So each time you 
finish doing something, you have to read the entire wall and make a dicision 
what is most important to do next.  Pretty soon you are just reading the wall 
with no time to accomplish anything.  I am finding that the things I 
concentrate on over and over become anchored memory after a while.  So I just 
keep repeating the process until something holds.  If I offend you or make 
you think I haven't taken your hard work serious, it is not true.  I fear 
alsheimers anymore because the effort to hold a memory seems to be getting 
more difficult all the time.  But I am not giving up.  If you can forgive me, 
I promise to be as careful in referring back as properly as I am able.  
Thanks again for the wonderful help.  If you can avoid it don't age; it is 
not all it is cracked up to be, excepting the alternative.  Believe it or 
not, I am making great progress right now.
