>> I apologize for . . .
I forgive you. You DID say my advice was valuable, at least twice. You didn't mention how witty, gracious and devilishly handsome I was, but that's OK.

I wasn't going to quote you extensively, just a line or two; "Raymond Maris points out that if your research includes living people, you should reply by e-mail instead of posting . . ."

I thought Fifield was rare too, until I looked for it on RWWC with no given name. There are 13,000+ entries.

There is a wonderful scene in "The Muppet Movie" where Peter Falk sees Kermit is glum, makes one assumption - that Kermit is glum because of a business deal gone bad - then launches into a three-minute soliloquy about how he lost money because he loaned his brother-in-law money for a dry-cleaning business. I saw you had not mentioned a place in your original, made one false assumption - that you were a newbie - then launched into my own soliloquy.

Good luck to you, too!
