I hate the fact that you suck me in.  I now have more to learn.....I already have enough to learn, but......... I suppose that if I'm to dominate in all facets of life, then I need to know localism inside out.  This is bookmarked Rich.....sigh!

Hey Rich,

I had been away from Localism for a while.  These links are terrific - I'll read each one and get back in the program.

Thanks,    Laurie

Thanks Rich for guiding me to this page.  I am working through the information and have realized the merits of bookmarking.  ActiveRain is so good about giving 'how-to's' but unfortunately I can't always get to the place to find the information as condensed as this.  Thanks again.
