Adelita, I just posted a book review and marked it for Nov. 5, but it popped up anyway, I think. I can see it, but maybe no one else can. I dated it for the fhe so that you could make the decision on when to use it. Can you let me know if it is already posted and if so, can you move it around to where it's supposed to be.  I am having so much trouble negotiation DCF.  

I think this is a post that might get some hits because I listed a whole bunch of names of former Albuquerque Journal reporters 1950s to 1973, who might be members or hear about it. Sounds funny, but when you see it in context, you'll understand better i think.
