Dear Jerry and John:
Gentlemen: Please forgive me for not understanding the protocol of using this forum. I am always grateful to anyone who gives their time and effort to help me in life. I try to be that sort of person myself. As you are both aware, I did promptly send a personal message to Jerry which expressed my gratitude and explained how and why the information provided has been helpful to me.
I acted under the presumption that others who scan the posts might find benefit from the information provided, but might be distracted by personal conversation. I further presumed that this was why a "personal messages" avenue was provided by the designers of this forum. You need not send me to Bautzen (former headquarters and main prison of the D.D.R.'s "Stasi") for this - I've already been there - just a tourist, not a "customer"!
But I do ask you to accept my sincere apology. Whatever slight you may have experienced was wholly unintended. Thank you for your kind assistance.
