Hi there Mardel, glad it helps and so glad to see that you decided to stick around! Smiling I think you will really love it here!

I've been here for a long time but it was just recently that I found the blue area at the very bottom of the page with useful information. *Blush* Someone told me that it had been there since the beginning. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Oh well, I'm old ... and that's my story and I'm sticking to it! Green Grin!

I was here awhile before I saw those too D'Oh! On a side note, all these younguns are so used to finding books & such off a computer at the library, they have no idea what the Dewey decimal system or card catalog is. During the zombie apocalypse, all us older folks will be able to find a book to read & those poor things will just be lost. And we'll be able to say "Not so important that you were able to set up my cell phone or dvd player now was it?" Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

I don't know ... there are many younguns nowadays who are very smart and could probably figure it out quite easily. Green Grin!
