  • Once I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a remark is added I get 4 emails with the same comment. Is there any method you possibly can take away me from that service? Thanks!

    • Brad, I’m sorry. Yours is the first complaint. Can you go back and uncheck yourself?

  • You’re most welcome, Anne. Another of my favorites: “Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.” –Anton Chekhov

  • Reminds me of another quotation: “The secret of success in life is to find out what you like to do and do it, and then find a way to get someone to pay you to do it.” — Richard J. Barker
