Adriane, and other PCP Network Participants: {especially Jack A-W):

Adriane, you appear to be off on a good start ... You have made some
important inroads.
Jack, did I cite your work (as below) with some accuracy?
If I did, could you provide Adriane with the most appropriate of your
work, relative to the point I tried to make.
Also, Adriane did not mention having contacted Ken Ford and his group
in Florida. Might you help her with that contact?? -- which I am sure would be
of great value.
If I am taking too much liberty with your generosity, Jack, you are
allowed to pass the task back to me!!!
