Monica--My sincere and humble apologies. Sorry to accuse you of misspelling: hydrocordone is, indeed, new to me. My bookshelf lacks a PDR. I used to read 'em while waiting for the docs to show up--fodder for my overly curious nature, but not something for a quiet night at home.

Also, love the choice of new topic--I've been into the subject since the days of the moon landings.
