Right, and I'm probably right in there at the 9 year old level ;-)

I'm trying to figure out what new (to me) things are worth spending time 
on this summer (worth = useful for me) and which are not.  I honestly do 
not see myself doing 32,000 card stacks anytime soon as my little things 
are just educational aids for my kids, so I thought I'd pick custom 
properties since everyone seems to be of the opinion that they are the 
bee's knees. Howevder, I need to see an example along the lines of the 
sorts of things I'd be likely to use them for as well as an extremely 
detailed set of instructions with explanations of why as well as how.

Thank you again for your reply,
