Oh gosh Larry, I missed this. Just today, surfing around a bit I read these headlines. What a blast. I was gasping for breaths laughing so hard. I want to copy it but have to figure out how to get it to a place that I can. I'm not sure you still check these old blogs for stray comments.

Help! I've written and I can't get up!
