Thank you for the information sent in response to my query.
This information is very very useful to me. I have learned that this
mailing list is wonderfully helpful in filling out information that is
missing something. Several on the list have responded, and even though some
seemed to look in the wrong direction, what they had to say was also of
value to me. We've been quiet lately. I hope that each member of the list
gains and gives what they can.
I tried to thank you for this before, but believe that the message was not
sent. Any duplication in unintended.
