The next attempt to print was sent to CUPS-pdf so I could preview it.  
Okular said it was good, and it does print ok once the page orientation was 
fixed.  NDI what happened when I tried to print direct.  I don't think that 
paper is dry yet!  And now of course the printer is requesting more ink, 
magenta is low, but should have enough to do this.

Poor photography on my part, in trying to setup out of the crowds way, I 
only got very fleeting glances at the stars of the show.  OTOH, no one else 
was making a movie of it, so I have an 'exclusive'. ;-)

Thanks Anne
Cheers, Gene
