Kismet—nice theme, should be fun!

You DID forget to mention the cash vouchers very generously offered as prizes every month by JADERAIL. I think he might be getting tired of reminding us!

Besides, the Chinese New Year is usually heralded with firecrackers. Do you really want to give Bob that much temptation? wink

Come take part in the Freebie Challenge, or the RRRR, or one of the other contests. I think Jaderail would have wanted that.

See if this will work for you. Hopefully you can pull the image from here to be able to use. If not, I can send you a copy through other channels.
