            There was a young woman of Natchez,
            Whose cloths were all in patches,
            When the question arose as to the state of her cloths,
            She replied, “Where I itches, - I scratches.”

            Sounds to me like all you people are getting your itches scratched. All in all, it seems to have been a good day all around.

            Just gotta go to the conference next year – must see Jim’s happy dance!! You don’t often see someone wear his cloths out - on the inside. Abba-dabba-doooooo.
