    For some reason I was not allowed to use my correct first name when joining the forum and wound up with Ren which makes me uncomfortable. I have no problem with having my real name displayed and I am not one that is paranoid about security. My legal first name is Alonzo and I have gone by LON for many years and not REN.

    I can change it for you. Do you want Lon Tanner, then?

    Done. The reason you couldn't create an account under the name of Lon Tanner was that someone had created an account under that name on March 31, 2016, using a gmail address. However, since that account has been inactive - no posts, and hasn't returned since creating the account, I deleted that one and assigned the name to you.

    I think that was Lon, too. I remember that he was having a hard time getting registered, and I think he actually had several accounts before he got this last one working.

    I just don't know.......Ren seems so much more, er,......accommodating, than Lon was. Perhaps it was due to mitigating circumstances connected with "that other place".......Frank
