Asking multi questions about something of which you have little to no knowledge only makes good sense to me. I claim not to be an expert on anything but life. I have 83 years of experience at that. During that time I made a lot of mistakes for which I paid, so I really was getting multi answers and going with the best for me. There are times that the best route for me is not the best as others see it but if it works for me I'll do it my way. I sincerly appreciate the input of all that gave me their ideas for this project. Thanks DonS
