...and for the procrastinators out there:

Boo-Hoo :-(  I'm not listed either.  Connie doesn't love me :-( 

Even if you don't win a prize... When we contribute we are all winners... the advice, sharing, knowledge, camaraderie and numerous other benefits from this site make us all WINNERS. :-)

(You didn't get your pledge in early enough, Larry. Watch for the next post.)

Always late to the party. 

 I'm going to stop procrastinating...
