they refused to let me use!!!!! "Dratsabs," my
friends, doesn't *even* cover it.

actual printing was completed before sundown?

not know what I am going to do. <

   Sublet part of your work out? Buy a second monitor
and run work/play side by side (Lemme see... foot
pedal for scroll-control...)? Learn to read in your

   C'mon, ListMind.... let's get *creative* here! <G>
