Thanks Bob,

Another good tip to add to my notebook!  Unintended re-initialization can bring disastrous consequences.  This, I have discovered.  Sigh.

I check it's value before initializing and only call the initialization handler if the global is not set to true. This has the benefit of being able to recall the initialization if needed during development without having to quit or close.remove from memory the stack. In the message box:
