Guten Tag Quattrofreunde!

I have received this message from my dear friend Gary. Unfortunately, I am not

able to help (since I never had a problem w/ mine). So, I thought that I would

forward it to you guys. Maybe you can shed some light on this for us.

TIA!   BTW, you can send any responses directly to
RobertsonGary at hotmail.com.
since he is not a lister (... not yet! Let's make him one!)
