Thanks Mike!

I do not plan to remove the tiles.  Regretfully, the grout is harder than 
heck and has been there since 1977.  We bought the house in 1980 and have 
not re-grouted it.  The only reason I am re-doing it is because there are a 
number of black gaps that need filling and i can not find a grout to match 
the colour.
