      I'll try it! Thanks <:o))

      I guess that I always make my solutions too complicated. That's why I
      haven't built any thing for 35 years.

      Your layout is great! and thanks for the link to the Nn3 web page. I
      should have tried that web page much sooner. They and you do
      outstanding work.
