    Well, Lisa, since you seem to be "superior" than those of us who
    have done this for years, I guess I'll just leave your novice
    attitude to those that are more willing to put up with your
    inexperienced and haughty tone.
    And by the way, honey, get a Thesaurus and learn to word your
    questions more accurately with a more appropriate choice of words.
    Also if you're going to use upper case in Congo, Timneh should
    also receive the same respect. Also, there are two d's
    in "additionally."
    That's all and good luck. You're going to need it.
