Hi Jim and all,

If you have anything you need to upload to BAMA please let me know as I will 
be happy to do it if you have problems. I have scanned a bunch of stuff and 
uploaded and will be happy to help anyone out.

I ask that you email me in advance that you are going to send a file and 
would appreciate knowing the size of the file.
