    Note to the Editor (HappyAndy): Not on this page, but on the previous page, the ‘lead-in’ page (I guess that is the name for it), on the Title Line, and thereafter, the title is at the bottom of the ‘box’ instead of the middle, making the lower-half of the characters/numerals very dirricult to read…thought you might like to know…keep up the good work!

    Very respectfully,
