I did, about 50 times over days.  How on earth did you get it to work?   Might it have had something to do with the fact I am using an iMac with OS 10 and TexShop editor.  And, it still didn't work for me.
But, I noticed that the code at the bottom of your message is slightly different from mine.  So I tried your exact code and it now works.    I still don't know what happened, but thank you very much!

it could be a good idea, if you tried your example code first by 
yourself ... ;-)
