Before you responded to my inquiry, my son-in-law found the secret to what we needed, without your help. Since I did not continue with the request and since therefore you did not furnish me with a solution, I see no reason for any charges at this point. I am sure I will be asking for your help in the future ( when my son-in-law is not around), please delete the charges for this time. Thank You.
