Many thanks for your observations, NACW. I think I started the Spectator for this year with marked progress, though. I needed to request just about four confirmations. I expect to continue in a positive way. Meanwhile, I have a challenge with Prolixic’s offering for which I seek further answers for my own edification. I do not enter the contest with this one. Thanks in advance!
