      Hello everyone: Thanks for your help and suggestions. One thing about
      Slovak World is that we are sort of like Slovak, "Brothers and
      Sisters." Yes, Paul there is a lot of stuff I want and I don't want
      to send it too la-la land before checking it out. Some of these
      characters out there, surely have ruined email as we once knew it. It
      is a shame!
      Thanks again to all who emailed me on Spam. I guess it is a loseing battle.
