Either way works! I'd just need to give you the password, etc. Otherwise, you can e-mail it to me and I'll post it.

Sorry, that last comment was from me...I'm trying out all the options - especially to see if anonymous really works - it does! Erin

I have to miss rehearsal tonight. I'm in South Dakota finishing up a project and the rain has been relentless. I was hoping to leave by noon to be back in time, but that is not going to be possible.

My apologies...
