    Thank you, Calvin!! I am getting quite an education from researching with Google
    and Wikipedia. Amazing trip down memory lane. I share the good or amusing
    responses with Ralph. He only looks at the numbers of views and responses, but
    doesn´t play. Great amusement while watching the depressing news on TV. You
    guys are great.
