I am sooo excited and will spend this weekend choosing equipment and
learning how to use it....I will write when I can call someone - ha!

And many thanks to Kevin and Antonio Carlos for these messages...this
is important information...to be able to teach software through video
conferencing is another amazing feature I never thought of...Val ;-)
