    Thanks, Nehmah. Oh the old site links were a different text color. Mousing over text is a pain to find the links. Wonder if it was design intent….. Naw. I won’t even get started on this sites des…

    Thanks for the book name. I have found an online copy at archive.org and am working my way through it. Gotta love the way they spoke and wrote back then. Pompous starts to cover it and “full of it”…
