Gene, I'm in no hurry. What I have works until I have better :-)
BTW, I sent another private email to see if it gets stuck again. The only thing that changed on this end (as far as me) was that I switched to Firefox browser and AOL hates Firefox. They sponser their own version of Internet Explorer, and if you don't use it, it gives your browser hell. I didn't ever use it :-)
I sent the first email you posted with firefox. I sent the new one with IE like I always have before.

Would that make a difference?

Time and honeydoo's
seems to have gotten away from me tonight. But they
are promising that we may
lose any glass rain gauges we leave out
tonight, and temps in the low 50's
tomorrow, and that will keep me
inside. Good chance then.
