"You've been a part of my life for over half of my life. I'll follow you wherever you go." - - - Bill Schadwell

"Even though I'm now in Los Angeles, after eight years in New Orleans, I've learned that there is only one hobby shop: Hub - - the rest are just places with some stuff in them." - - Alan Greenstadt
