Ah, the "DO" command. I remember now hearing about it on this list in
times long gone by.
I always felt there was always something a little mysterious and
miraculous about it.
I think there must have been a "DO" command involved when the Sun

Don't explain it to me. I need a little mystery in my life right now.
Suffice it to say that it works. Thanks.
