Sure I can, Jim, but half of the fun in answering a question is
knowing WHY it is yes or no (or in this case, maybe). We've all had
it with the simple answer...that's easy to give. It's the
explaination of why or why not the answer is the way it is that we
REALLY want to know.
Besides, it gives me a great deal of pleasure and pain (especially at
dinnertime and bed time) to be able to respond to questions that I
can *use my resources* to answer for all of us here. There are lots
of folks out there that have resources to answer several of our
questions...but are they willing to share what they know (good or bad,
right or wrong, accurate or somehow off-center) with all of us? And
be critized for the sharing? As often as I can do it here?
Finally, by sharing what I know enables me to "do a good turn daily"
and to uphold the principles of the program that I love dearly. At
the same time, it gives those here yet another way that they can "use
(this is line 22. A "screen" is 24 lines long.)
