  • Ummm. The link does not go to the answers to the probing questions you asked…inquiring minds are now totally frustrated! Am I missing a link on that site, or maybe they changed it?

    • I WAS missing the link. One has to click on the “From the Guardian” to get to the entire article.

      • Caro–did I do something wrong that didn’t allow people to click on the link, or didn’t it show the correct link? I’m still befuddled over the technical stuff–try to have mercy, I’m old! LOL.
