Meanwile, my laptop is in for repair, JD's computer is windows 98, so won't open sites with many graphics. My old pc with xp is acting up, won't print, and keeps telling me failure is about to happen. A good part of the time I can't access my email. But, I printed several emails off today and am working on them. So, if you sent us one and we haven't responded, we will--we are just running way behind!
