Given the number of foks interested, can we set a time? I would prefer tomorrow, though I might be able to do half an hour today if that's better for others. Throwing out the first suggestion, how about 1 Central tomorrow afternoon?

I would also. I can remember a time when I wouldn't have wanted any mention

exclusively pigeon-holed. I'm often good with words, so would be happy to
participate and help if I can.

Hey,

Yep.  I'll be around on Skype, MSN and all such usual suspects most of the
weekend as Karen must work both days.  I may be gone for awhile on Sunday
afternoon but that is not certain.  Wanna set a time?
