    Great pics LT. Did you see the NHL player who got part of his ear lopped off, had it sewed back on and then came back to score the winning goal? Pretty damn impressive. (do you still have your front teeth incidentally? )

    We think everything was invented within our lifetime but it's been going on a looooong time. I love looking back at history, at least we're still doing these things. Merry Happy!!
