Hi Ann. I've had this on my list for a while. :) Please put me in for sections 3 & 11. My time will be somewhat limited for the next few weeks, but I should be able to get to these before too long. :) Thanks

I went ahead and changed the text link to the one you provided, Jo. It was a toss up to me, which one to use. But if this one is easier to read from, then that decides it!

I thought the white background on the pages made it easier to see the text. My recording space has very dim lighting so that probably influences that opinion. :wink:
