Thanks you, Greg, for the courtesy of your response, which appears to admonish me, in kindly and humorous fashion (I hope), to think for myself...so I'll try to bend my brain around the question... best wishes to you and yours for this new year, 2012! Gil

No admonishment necessary--it's what all my readers do instinctively, right?
