I did try them.  I may have missed replying your to your specific
comment, but I tried them.

BTW str(range (10)) does work with Python 2 which is where I may have
got the idea.  I happened to be using Python 3 at the time I tried to
implement it.  It is a little confusing jumping back and forth, but
for the moment, I am going to tough it out.

I do appreciate all the help too.
