    Hi, Tom. Thanks for following up. I believe that at the time I was editing it, we were still within the 24-hour mark.

    No worries, Tom. For what it's worth, I just had to add "www." in each URL. Keep up the good work.

    Will Tom Urtz Jr. ask a question in his title that he doesn't answer rhetorically?

    Sure thing, Tom. Where age constructions are concerned, only post-noun adjective phrases ("23 years old") are not hyphenated. Nouns ("the 23-year-old") and pre-noun adjective phrases ("the 23-year-old blueliner") are hyphenated.
