Tammy: You're certainly persistent! I'll be posting the 'answers' soon;-)

Yes that I am :-)
I do not believe in giving up, but it would seem that I am not understanding the noun-pronoun agreement that you wish me to see. I look forward to reading the answer. Hopefully I will then understand what it is that you were looking for and which I was unable to produce.

Thank you
