Good Morning,

  I can't remember them all right now. (I can't be that old yet.) I know
  Sir Conor did a series on all 6 of them in the local newsletter. I
  will chase it down and, with his permission, send them out here for
  people to read. The problem is that my computer and office are
  currently in disarray due to moving. It may not be til the first of
  the year. (Since if it doesn't happen by next Thursday, I'll be
  out of state.)
