Hello again,

I'm a little embarrassed that it has take me so long to compile my list 
of responses to share with you all, but here it is.  I would like to 
thank everyone who answered my call for help.  You all gave me lots of 
valuable information and leads.  Thanks so much, and hopefully this 
compilation of ideas will benefit others as well.

Happy New Year!
