Please send these types of requests directly to the list and NOT directed 
to an individual.  Normally I'd just ignore this type of email as spam, but 
I'm feeling generous today.

I was just reading a Star Trek book yesterday where one of the characters 
names was Stanger or Sanger.  For a moment I thought this was some REALLY 
clever spammer that could not only see my email lists, but read my mind.

NO I Can't Help You.  Sorry.
