It has been brought to my attention, that Gemini was missing from this post (Thank you very much!)

After reviewing this post, I am shocked with all that is wrong with it; with said, I am correcting the mistakes and re-posting it.

I am very fortunate that a loyal reader took the time to give me a "head's up"
