Some folks just don't listen.... like the whoever wrote the HD 1-2-3 Home Maint book, the Family Handyman magazine and the plumber for This Old House. But, shoot, in my profession (law) I *cannot* begin to tell you how many lawyers do things simply because that's how "ol' Bob" used to do it.....

Thanks, again, Terry.
