Typing... and Slug Resistant Gold Hostas

Hi Narda,
RE>>:You must have taken piano as a child to be able to keyboard that much.

Actually, I've had good keyboarding skills for nearly 20 years.  I used a
program called "Type Attack" initially, to enhance my speed and accuracy,
and later followed up with "Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing".  I am now the
fastest typist west of the Mississippi; I am quite certain of this.  <g>

A Hosta and slug resistance question:

George Schmid may have written of it and I will look there too, but does
anyone know if there is a yellow/gold series of Hosta that are slug
resistant, like the Tardiana's?

I'm looking specifically for those plants that would have yellow,
chartreuse, or gold leaves.   If there are some that are A LOT more slug
resistant than others, those would count but if a whole series exists, I'd
like to discover their identity.  I'm thinking plants like Golden Sculpture,
Zounds, Harvest Glow, Super Bowl, or King Tut may qualify, but any other
suggestions would be appreciated.  It would be REALLY good if there were a
species plant (a gold one) that appeared to be rather slug resistant, but
the species plants that are gold, of which I am aware, are more like slug
bait than being slug resistant.
