Merry Xmas & Happy New Year & a special thanks to Lance, taking the reins for two people this past year. And all the same goes to Corlyss--here's hoping she can rejoin us soon.

I'm sorry that you are not well Chalkie. Unfortunately all of my attempts to win a signed picture of SSRattle came to nought so I will not be able to dampen, sorry I mean lift your spirits with a present of the man. I hope this hastens your recovery. Take care Chalkie and enjoy what's left of the festive season.

Sorry you were down and out at this time of year. Maybe the Rattle was in your
head and not your chest. A wee dollop of Horowitz was probably the answer!! :D
