That last message needs ONE change and since I can't change
or delete it I have to do it in this message. The line
"year = year - 1900" should read "year = year - 1900 :
WHILE year > 28 : year = year - 28: WEND"

And the following line should be MOD 29 (not MOD 28).

As it is it will work for all years except 1928, 1956, 1984, 1984+28, ...

Apologies to All,
                  Bill C.
