Thanks Tammy, Marcie, Colleen, Agnes,Donna, Cindy and Linda!
You get it for $20. from www.flamingpear.com ..You can get a two week free trial also.
Be warned, if you're not computer literate, they send it in a zip file. Save it to your desktop instead of clicking on open when you download, then you can play around with it easier getting it to where you want it to end up. The first time I tried a year or so ago, it went into the depths of my hard drive never to be seen again. #1370985
