Thanks a lot for your assistance.
I tried right away to post the link you provided (starting 4:00 AM local time) but I don't know... no effect so it seems.
I checked on Mike's tutorial and followed the steps but still -- nada.
Hmmm where did I miss?
I'm beginning to think even the internet doesn't want me to post an avatar at all. (Wow!)
And this reminds me of that old Oral-B toothbrush commercial on television:
Clip shows a man with his back to the camera, wearing nothing but a towel around his waster, and brushing his teeth in front of a mirror.
Narrator: "This man is a dentist. So we can't show his face on television."
