In my fanatical attempt to write perfect English, I have discovered that for me it is impossible, but to be understood is perfect for me. Tdol, thank you from the bottom of my heart, you answered all my questions and all of your answers were right on the mark. I am a armchair writer with a Hemmingway quest. I may never write like Hemmingway, but simple and basic writing is perfect for me. Thanks Tdol. Paul
