If I may be permitted to attempt a little refereeing in this OT exchange ....

Steve, although you have actually quoted the relevant part of Peter's message header and text correctly, you seem to have interpreted it totally incorrectly.

Peetie Wheatstraw <peetie_wheatstraw@HOTMAIL.COM> did indeed post the original question, and Peter Crawford (an entirely different person :-) replied to it, quoting a part of Peetie's original message (with appropriate attribution) at the start of his reply. You appear to have got all a bit muddled up by this :-)

Kind Regards
