    Man, for a guy who doesn't turn, that's an impressive piece. Very nice work for sure, Jim.

    Nathan, Jim's referring to the Southwest style of the form. And no need for apologies...I'm a relative "oldie" and it took me a minute or two to figure out what he meant, too. (And I even like turning Southwest style forms.) Never be hesitant to ask questions around here, because chances are, there are other folks with the same question, but just afraid to ask. (We've all been new at this stuff once.)

    And since this is your first post, I'll add:

    Welcome aboard, Nathan.
