Your comments and questions are helping me to recall what the web 
developer's list taught me :-) , and I have just found my way to 
http://codex.wordpress.org/The_Loop_in_Action#The_Loop_In_Other_Templates . 
This has more answers and I'll follow through links from there too. If I 
get really bright I may be able to go ahead from there, but I am sure 
I'll be asking more questions. Most likely for comments on code I've
