Hey Tom,
Got your email and forwarded it to the list, however, it looks like it's a big 
mess from a user
stand point. I will sent it out separately without the jpg attached and include 
the jpg in my
newsletter if that's ok with you. I'll resend this info out when I have created 
a link to the jpg
on my site and include the link in the post. I'll do that later today. Thanks 
for the info.
