Bettie I'm not sure I posted this snippet in the right section on your Group bookshelves. Sling it elsewhere if it intrudes here but I do like that there should be a General chit-chat corner.

I over heard the news while getting ready for work the other day, they were talking about finding Richard III remain's under a parking lot just recently and were able to confirm it by DNA testing with a 17th, hope I got it right, generation cousin from Canada. Imagine the shock if he had no idea. Anyways thought it was really neat.
