Joe, it was operator error on my end,  I did not mean to reply at all to that message.  I have learned how to "re-send" a message that has been sent to me, and it was quite by accident that I learned this trick.  Of course, I have no idea why anyone would want to take a message that they had just received and then send it out again to all of the same recipients...The nice people at Apple must know something that I do not know, because they have a slick little key combination that accomplishes this very thing and quite quickly at that.
