Thanks for the added example, Ann. I'm not certain whether I'm more
comforted or more discomforted to know the problem is widespread. I'm
definitely relieved, though, to find that I'm not going to have to
come up with a biological explanation for the abrupt increase in GD!

I do wish the ROSE project would display their results online, so we
ROSE researchers could see them (my paternal grandmother was a ROSE).
As it stands, you have to subscribe to the Rose Family Association
Bulletin to view results which means, at best, you're waiting months
to find out what's new.
