Hi, Terry,

Thanks for the kind words.

I've been a lurker and occasional poster on B-Greek for 5-6 years. 
Oftentimes conversations get bogged down with a lot of unneeded verbiage but 
today you've made me laugh and you've enlightened me and done it with a 
minimum words!
Thank you for the sermonette <smile>
