Note:  

        For those who find the print a "wee bit too small", I can recommend the following courses of action: (1) Hold down your CTRL key and press the "+" key until you get the size you prefer; or, (2) If you use Microsoft Internet Explorer, click on the 'View' option on the top line of Internet Explorer, then move your mouse selection down to "Text Size", and from there you can select a viewing size (there are 5) which best suits your needs. I'm sure other popular internet browsers have similar options.
