(AAG Note: You'll probably need to copy this blog, paste it into a blank Word or Word Perfect document, make sure it's sized correctly, delete this sentence and then print... we're not going to get rid of the extra lines below, that way if you do that, it'll look like the entry they used. Then again, if you don't know how to do that, do a search and find the organization, I'm sure they'll have a printable form.)
