I thought I had some great ideas to add to this conversation but lost my
Internet connection ... again*^&*^(&^&*I((UO ... and any other varied curses

PS: I may or may not be borrowing a neighbor's WiFi ... I cannot connect to
the Internet with my production machine so I am reading/replying with my
laptop. EAC
