Hi Ark,I sent the corrections to the editors yesterday. They emailed me today that they have received my message and will make the spelling corrections as soon as possible.I did see your comment yesterday, and right after reading it, I sent the corrections to the editors. I am so sorry about the spelling errors. I am afraid that I used the spell check function, plus the site has its own spell check function which sometimes changes the spelling of words without anyone realizing the changes were made. I am so sorry about that. The editors should get to it as soon as they can.Happy Easter.Best Wishes,Susan

Dear Ark,I didn't see you at the Red Herring earlier. Can we arrange a time to meet or a place you can drop off the SD memory card, or a person you can give it to for me? My phone is (217) 367-5011. E-mail is palmer@illinois.edu. In a pinch you can give it to Dan Pierson or Larry Gray. Just let me know what you want to do. If you call when I'm out, you can leave a phone number or an e-mail address. I hope the videos aren't too disappointing. The recital was terrific. Thanks,Palmer******
