I think That's our problem, Tbeek. You and I don't transport our true thoughts over to each other in print. I answer nearly all your questions. Maybe I don't realize what you are asking, or you don't understand my answer, but it is there.

There's another difference in us. No, I'm not trying to find common grounds, I'm trying to see your thoughts and show mine. I don't expect either to change one iota from reading something a total stranger posted on some forum.
No, not angry. Just failing to understand.
