    Thank you.

    I hesitate to point out this error within a thread--we try to avoid unncecessary visits from the language and spelling police--but this is a great way to call attention to a horrendously frequent mistake.

    HIPAA, HIPAA, HOORAY, for KellNY!

    I remember the spelling by thinking it isn't even close to HIPPO . . . so don't spell it with 2 "P"s . . . .
