    Thank you Cindy. I know how hard you have worked my dear egg lady  I 
am a fan of yours.
    I have spent 30 years of my life working my tail off to improve 
Spanish-English communications from simultaneous to book translations et 
al. Now I happen to be back and forth between Chile and Madrid doing the 
same. If someone called me at 4 am at 104 degrees on a summer night in 
Madrid while trying to meet a publication deadline and called me lazy I 
would belt him in the nose. My telephone would be in shreds!!!.
    Remarks like that hurt me. That hurts my spouse and before we know 
what is going on my kids get into the boxing ring ready to defend me in 
every way!
    Oh and I forgot my cat! She is very dangerous too! Her name is 
Barbara Bush. That's another story.
    Thanks Cindy you are great for calling a spade a spade :-* ,
