Thanks to you all for making me feel so welcome to the list, and for the wise counsel regarding the "problem" I had with the Java coffee. The neighbor to whom I gave it could be heard moving furniture over there well into the evening (it was her day off and she gave her daughter's room "a good cleaning). She said it was the best! (grr...amateurs!)
I've been in denial about the caffeine. It seems to be good for my brain and various other parts, but perhaps I've just exceeded my limits as an addict will predictably do (I swore off gluten five or six years ago for health reasons, and I put off doing it for a long while because it required that I give up beer, my other favorite beverage). While the prevailing opinion among the intervention community is that one must inevitably quit, just for today I'm gonna look into the decaf beans. And accept my amateur status. But gosh, when the coffee tastes divine, one wants more immediately! And later.
I have not been able to sort out the machine language that is interspersed with this list (it seems parts of it come through in a form that my mail server cannot translate. So I haven't been able to easily follow but I just discovered the archives and that will help.
Thanks again for being so nice. I wrote a long missive answering Brett's questions, but when I sent it it was lost in the ozone, and I can't do it again. Next time. Is somebody using "incorrigibly" in his/her closing? Drat, it's such a good word but I'm pretty sure someone is already using it.
