I was going to respond to this but since I can't think of anything nice to 
say I am going to shut up and let Steve reply if he chooses.  I just don't agree 
with the above message and it's too close to Happy Holiday time to get into a 
disgruntled dissertation.

Musical content:

Hark the HAROLD SINGS, even if a bit off key.

Cheers,  Have a brandy sit back and put louis on the music box and enjoy life 
while we still can.

Cheers to all,

Tom Wiggins
