Juanita and Nancy:
I am reminded of a great line from a colleague some (many?) years ago. She
was applying for a professional position and was asked "Can you type?"
She replied, "No, but I can ice skate."
He said: "What's ice skating got to do with it?"
She said: "What's typing got to do with it?"
She got the job. :>)

Well, I love it. Too bad it's too long for a button, but it's a great one
liner for presentations. I'll add it to the collection as a quote from
Nancy Patterson in Portland, MI, if that's okay with you.
Your site is great!
