PPS Remember: if you make Youtube videos of a non-personal nature that you would like to share in the Post, mail me the url with some brief comments. 'Non-personal' means no people who don't want to be seen, and particularly no kids at all. Household pets, home appliances, and random wildlife are fair game. We have video cameras and are not afraid to use them. See ducks in this week's issue.
