    Thank you. I honestly (and my son would so no surprise there) had no idea that was there. That will sure make things easier.

        I need to do something different. I awaken every morning to nearly 300 notifications that I never get caught up on fully. I enjoy reading the variety of things offered but its a bit much. I struggle to find my usual reads among that, this will help.

          Yes, setting up lists should certainly help 🙏😊
