William - hi from sunny Phoenix!  So you asked if one reads the question before you answer it. Might be kind of funny to not read it and simply give an answer. Kind of like Michael Jacobs and Roger D. Mucci did here (or rather do quite often)!  There used to be a thing called 'hijacked posts' and it was a riot to see where it would take off to.......enjoy your day!

Thanks, Roger D.
