George, your workload sounds incredible!  It's fantastic that 
you can keep it all moving without running out of steam --
you and Miz Anne are to be commended -- oh, dear, and of
course, Sleepy Dawg who obviously kept all the wild animals
at bay while you worked ......

Jimmie and I decided to climb in the car halfway thru dinner
and drive down towards whatever vantage point we might 
discover in order to see the twin light beams on the World
Trade Center.  The stars are out, there is no moon, and the
air is chilly so that the visibility should be excellent. We
drove more than 15 miles in to the city without finding the
lights -- and that meant that they could only have been some
10 miles further, but we gave up because of all the tall
buildings in the way. Only thing we could have done would
have been to cross the George Washington Bridge, since
for sure they would have been visible from the middle of
the Hudson River -- but that would have meant a toll of $4
or $4.50, don't know, and we turned around instead ....  
we'll find a way, on another night, betcha. 

Came back to find that the switch which turns on my 
computer had broken, so Jim opened up the steel case
and we could see that the acrylic holder for the switch 
had fractured...  Jim says no one on earth will have a
replacement part, and he wants to drill a hole in the face
of the cage front, and install a larger switch. I hollered
WAIT a minute, and so now I have staring me in the face
a grey monster naked as a jay bird, with a dangling
idiot light bar in front!  All I have to do is to push the old
starter button by hand, and she takes off!  Don't worry,
I know the parts to keep my hands off ....
