Good morning to you to, Bob.

I see now that dictionaries in Python act like relational databases in
that there is no inherent ordering. At first, when I simply wanted to
print one entry and it came out in what looked like a random order,
this didn't occur to me. A normal "dictionary" is in fact ordered.

Sorry for the disturbance.
