Thanks for the info.  I am so glad you have learned to report in;  I was 
not at home and had no access to a computer or I would have been asking.  I 
am glad no one else was hurt either.  This is why I hate drunk drivers so 
much; the people they hurt are usually, totally innocent.

You all keep being careful.
