Yes, I am picky about what I acquire. For instance someone tried to pass on
the fact that John Collier was supposed to have handed the peace pipe to
Tecumseh but I can find no record of any such thing. So you see there is

paid many time for information but now that I have the responsibility of
caring for my 90 year old father that leaves me unable to travel like I
would like to. I really don't mind paying for info it's just a bit
expensive most of he time and now that I have car payments it makes it even
more of an expense. But then maybe most of he researchers have a LARGE NEST
