hey Scott,
Thanks for the good reminder.  I agree 100% that I couldn't get my project 
done without all the kind people on this list!!!
I was just really frustrated this morning and your wise words have brought 
me back to some sort of sanity.  I'm sure many people who know me well would 
question if I ever am completely sane.
