George,

There's life beyond the fishbowl!

You obviously know your way around this office just a bit too well.  Thanks

Hi Peter,

Leave the goldfish bowl, turn right, end of wall, gizmo on table invented
after the telex machine - 2 pages from British Braille, 1 from UK Braille
Primer.

I suspect confusion is due to confusion over letters in parenthesis and
whether or not a letter sign is required.  The Braille Primer says letter
signs should be used for ALL reference letters and Roman Numerals.

George.
