  • I hear it.  I can't tell you how many times I have composed a response but in the process you have responded before I get it done. Your answers are always better than mine. Must be a product of being retired and I currently have too much time on my hands. Always anxious to see reply's to see if I got it right.

  • Don't diss your answers.  You do well.  I like the posting delay for editing purposes but hate it when I am unaware of the other three respondents.
