I wanted to share that "muster a pose" created in my mind a literal
picture of summoning the energy to stand ready for a picture.  I
pretty much stopped reading the rest of that sentence.

I have a bunch of other emails to read, if you're going to distract me
with amusing typos I'll probably miss your actual point.

I also have to admit I didn't take the time to watch the hour-plus
long video that Natasha posted.  I wish she had summarized to a few
overview points so I could comment directly on those takeaways.

BillK:  I stand corrected re: Amish population.  Unexpected.  Not sure
how to make sense of those facts.  :)
