Thank you very much... simple and easy fixes.
Three"final" queries:
(1) I need to make a little more room on the left for the larger axis
label. I tried 'mex' in the list for ylab but that was ignored.
(2) Is it possible to place a tick at each year on the x-axis, but only
label every other year?
(3) Can the legend pieces be broken into two lines (one for loess and one
for points)?
