Guys, et al, it was not sarcastic, it was not meant as humor.  I simply 
did not remember her Excellency's name when I wrote.  I think it would be 
really nice if instead of complaining, you two both got down to it and 
wrote a poem, so we could sell a book, so that we could give the Baroness 
the proceeds.  Is that a BAD idea.
