What kind words Brian! Thank you!

I'm not ready to submit my stuff yet...probably selfish I know, but at the
moment I think I'd like to wait and fine polish it more! My 'cousin' Ruth
Levine is going to deal with my research once I've popped my clogs...a very
comforting thought I have to say....knowing that someone who knows and
appreciates the work will be looking after it after I've died......as she's
younger than my daughters I'm feeling quiet comfortable about it all.

Brian, every time I right click on the Death Notices I bless your cotton
socks!!! I've started going through my transcriptions and am already sorting
out things I missed...

It's the second 'right click' I've learned about in the past few days...I've
also learned to do that when wanting to add an email address into my
address-book!!!

That's the thing about being self-taught...there are basics you simply don't
know about.
Best wishes,
Tombi Peck
