Thank you for answering.  I used to be a Clipper/dBase programmer years 
ago. I got sick, couldn't work, and technology passed me by.  I've 
always been kind of ticked off that my career was short circuited 
because of illness, so I decided to see if I could get a handle on OOP. 
The more I learn about Python, the more I loved it. 

So much has been invented since my dos programming days and it is 
overwhelming, but I'm having the time of my life learning all this 
stuff. My head explodes quite often :).
