    Thanks - Now to figure out how to remove my second fork..  I'll
    handle that.<br>
    <br>
    I thought a fork and a branch were basically the same thing but with
    different parents, sorry for the misunderstanding, i'm new to Git.<br>

                      To prevent this, I recommend that you create a
                      branch for each bug or feature you're working on.
                      This way each of your pull requests can be based
                      on a different branch and then you manage to
                      achieve separation of concerns cleanly. <br>

                    I'm trying that now using this documentation:<br>

                    <br>
                    <br>
                    Hopefully that's all i need to do this, because
                    github wouldn't let me refork the original without
                    my changes.<br>
