Thanks Bobbee  Admin does all the hard "nuts and bolts" work.  We get the fun stuff!  I just love the "in development" search ad feature which allows us to find ads by model name.  It's gotta be a lot of work on Admin's end, but it's such a great feature!  Thanks Stephen for your continued dedication!

This is good stuff, great find on the ad! ..although:

'LEXINGTON' would be sufficiant in the model identification IMO, variant "B" shows and describes an expansion Bracelet.
