Welcome Jenny, 

Join the club! Starting as a volunteer is like going out dragon boating the
first time. WE start with the first book:) This is a very knowledgeable
group here so if you have questions just send them along .

Oh wow!!  Coincidentally enough, we just moved from Jupiter and Arapaho
ourselves in May.  Actually, we lived on a small winding street called
Wheaton, just off of Jupiter.  In fact, I used to catch the DART bus there
at the intersection near the Minyards every day.  Talk about a small world!
LOL  We lived there for six years.

Thanks for the information on the running headers.  Actually, I do recall
reading about normalizing the running headers, but well..I have to admit, I
wasn't completely sure I knew what was considered a "running header".  But,
now I know! :)
