        Hi Pat,
        I have similar problems myself…verify, verify, verify…that’s the advice I get from my son-in-law… Google it..or, did you reboot? Some things never change, but I’ve been reading your posts and glad to know you are feeling good. I’m still at work on DP Chronicles. Cathy Gingrich

Your truely befuddled friend. Cathy
