Thanks Unca Joel,

Your report is the most convincing & well thought out response, although I think everyone did a good job of passing away the dog days of summer pursuing my dubious post!

Since St. C was the only Patron Saint I really knew of, I ASSummed it was to obvious to be appropriate, & I am wrong again! In any event, taking poetic license liberties w/ Vanagon Patron Saints allowed for a more stimulating conversation, wouldn't you agree?

Thanks to all who contributed to the discussion- my apologies to all who were offended.
