Thank you once again, Chris for the talent and time you spend
with this group, as in your recent Post. I hope Joe and/or others
respond or add other insights to this subject....
the group as one of your co-hosts here, but my computer and
cell phone both
went kaput during an electrical storm a week or so ago.
I got an old cell
phone working and hooked up again but it may be a year
or two before I can
save enough for another computer. Therefore, my
online time will be
confined to accessing the public library w/one hour
time limit a day. I
will discuss with Vince and Stan the possibilities
of perhaps another
co-host to keep an eye out for Spam, etc.....
