Thanks Lana,

However I do not recall the thread (and I do read the list).
A search (of the list) did not bring up anything and eyeballing the
last few months did not reveal a related subject.

I respect the answers from this list much more than the random google
advice, but I will do a search if I do not get an answer here.
