Just clearing up some list confusion from yesterday. Looks like Derrick
sent this email (see below) to me, Rose and Matt, and NOT THE LIST.

So, Liz & Wyn, please accept my apology! I was under the mistaken

Anyway, for anyone interested in a top down look at all the correspondence
so far, check the archives (I love threaded views):
