Hi John,

My Ex was not good for much ;-)
but as an electrical engineer he did teach me this.  Get the disposable 
tiny dental crevice brushes, dip them in alcohol and use in tiny spaces. 
It is helpful if you can dip the "space" in alcohol and swish it around
before and after and of course allow everything 24 hours to dry.....

Peace
Debra

True reconciliation is never cheap, for it is based on forgiveness, which
is costly. Forgiveness in turn depends on repentance, which has to be
based on an acknowledgment of what was done wrong, and therefore on
disclosure of the truth. You cannot forgive what you do not know.
Archbishop Tutu
