Man, that was like forever ago, and I forgot and didn't get it posted on my 
web site.  Who keeps the stuff?  It even included a paragraph or two on 
left handed lug nuts.  Considering the date was just a few weeks prior to a 
major computer crash and procurement of a new machine, I suppose it was 
lost in the smoke.  But I did just post it on line now, so thank you all 
for the reminder.
