I'll get a couple of copies - one for her and one for me, so if she asks me something, she can tell me the page and I can know what she is referring to, as I live a long way from her. It's funny, I can buy used copies on Amazon for $1.50 or in the UK =A328, which is about $50. I think Amazon charge about $6 for international shipping on books, so its a bit of a no brainer. I'll buy a couple of copies from the USA, do my bit to increase the C02 emmisions by shipping a book across the Atlantic. I would have preffered a more modern book, but perhaps a combination of an old one and a new one will be of help. Dave
