      Old Harry had a hell of a life and career. I remember watching Dragnet when I was little every afternoon. Officer Gannon

      I aways found it funny that he played a crazy general in a Mash episode before he came on as Col. Potter.

        Me too! I've seen every episode probaby 20 times.

        RIP Harry!

          They air episodes on some cable network on weekend nights.
          He was awesome in nodding affirmatively when Joe Friday would light into some punk kid with a terse and damning lecture on the evils of marijuana.
          Or pot or reefer as you kids call it.

          It helped punctuate the seriousness of the lecture and the righteousness of Joe Friday's tireless crusade against juvenile delinquency and the horror that results from kids--some as young as twelve years old smoking a powerful and damaging narcotic.

            I still enjoy watching reruns of MASH when I can It was my moms favourite show, and she always watched it when I was a kid. Now, when I watch it, I understand why she found it so funny.

                The actual recipes are a mix of semi-Hawaiian and authentic Hawaiian (e.g. Koi, Haupia and Kulolo are proper Hawaiian Desserts, but then Manju Cake, Bibingka Cake, Chocolate Tofu Mousse pie and Hawaiian...

                Well, who knows. They might have their reasons that would make sense if we knew them.

                I'm grateful for the time both you spent to inform me and respect your expertise. Didn't mean to sound like I was disregarding what you shared. Just figure if it's not going to make much of a difference...

                Hmmm, good question. Probably not. Most generally recognized professions seem to have licensing requirements, though, so I guess my comments stem from designers being somehow excluded and the profession...

                No one gave me a solution seems like either way I would get similar results. I suggested the clients use the file we already have in hand and they insisted they wanted vector. I'm open to having the imaged...
