Hello Robert,

Funny you should ask.

I would bet that *some* (but not all) of your problem is on *your* end!

Because, according to my correctly set computer clock and calendar and time zone
setting, and according to my email client listings, you sent the above email at
least 30 minutes from now, into the future!

Howdja do that?!

So I suggest you check your time zone setting for starters. HTH.

And YES, there are several folks around here who don't have their clocks etc.
set properly, what can ya do ...
