The following was a gift....not just from the one who gave it to me,
but from all who answered the question. I made this into a website
to send to my friends for Christmas (1997 - where has the time gone?).
I hope this site will last more than a season and I also hope
it will touch you as it did me. Please feel free to
pass it along to someone else.
