Dear List, At Chuck's urging, I share my experience w/youse all. Please be nice to her ,as she is a very sweet lady. But be firm. Its not our fault their e-mail was down. Be aware however that there is some big football(U.S. style) game in town that weekend. Seems to be one reason for less availability. And DON'T tell her I said to call!!!! Whomever ths helps; beers on you. ciao, GianTindaro Pergolizzi N.Y.C. just back from 40 mi. in Prospect Park, Brooklyn.
