Goodness Pat, don't do that! Your response was as always helpful. I know
when I read it I didn't think this was incorrect in anyway, in fact I was
most interested as I was at one time playing around with a title for mine

My apologies to this list if my response to Holly's message was considered
inappropriate. It certainly was not meant that way. Perhaps my answers are
not always the most diplomatic BUT they are only meant to help. I enjoy
passing on what I have learned and helping others as a way of saying thank
you for help I have received both from this list and other lists.
I'll lurk for a while and keep my opinions to myself.
