      How nice of you, BQM, to send me a second copy of the book, now with virtually no damage; must've have a few spares left to send the replacements. You didn't need to, I was more or less content with the item, but I very much appreciate the gesture.

      Now I must figure out who to give my old copy as a gift.

      Thomas - a few USPS returns are waiting to be picked up from wrong address delivery down at the 'ole post office. Will check to see if yours is one of those. It should have MORE than made it to you by now.

      Maureen - given your level, you SHOULD have gotten it by now, but the USPS is the USPS after all. Your level went out last week via media mail (which is SLOOOOOOOW), so maybe give it a few more days.
