Here's a strange one....

On a sidenote, on my recent vacation in the U.S. I came across a funeral
home in a small town.  Nothing unusual, until you look at the name of the
place "Dunkum funeral home"!  Wonder if he's buyin LN2 and dwars?:)  I
guess this is the only mailing list I can mail that to and have ppl

So long,
