Hello Charles, and Everyone!

Thanks for your great diagrams, Charles...I enjoyed reading them -
and by the way - your Carmen Miranda posting long ago was absoultely
wonderful...It was written well and gave me a good chuckle (which I
am in need of these days)... regards to these 5 palm facings...I am not going to throw
out the diagonal positions just because you don't want to use them -
I like writing hands on the diagonal, and if I want to, I will!

But of course, I respect your decisions too!

So there are five positions - back, back-diagonal, side,
forward-diagonal and forward...and people can choose what they want
to use...

I am just glad I was able to pin that down, because I have a lot of
documents with the diagonal positions...

So go right ahead and analyze what works for you...I think it is
fascinating ;-)

And your other posting was charming too with all the Christmas holly
- so sorry it has taken me so long to tell you that!

My best -

Val ;-)
