Hey, thank you all!!
The only real hard part is keeping what you decided to be the center in the center as you turn the camera...handheld that is.
Actually, last night I discovered a pint of Ben and Jerrys "Phish Food" icecream and got to bed a might later than normal....:-)

Yup, if the word ends with a "C", add a "K" before the "ed" or "ing" or whatever.....:-)
