Hi Kevin,  I happened to be kicking around in my page here at VPA and noticed this comment from you.  Sorry for not replying, I never saw it.  Hopefully your question was answered back in July or August.  I don't think we get 'pinged' when there's a new Comment.  Next time try a Friend Request, that shows up in the Inbox.

I don't think you've been around much lately, hopefully you still drop in.

Cheers ~ Mary
