Dear Jeff,

Both my computer's are down so I finally got a new cell, my first smart phone! Usually they are dumbphones, fliptops with no learning curve or value. So I haven't figured out a few things but I finally got your mail! Your email addresses are on my computers so more soon when I figure it all out.....thank you it's great even upside down.
