Wow, I learned fast that JoAnn Heck won the 50/50 drawing and she said she kept the money!!!!  Thank you Robert and JoAnn and Herb for correcting me (but I swear I thought Martie won it).  Now do you believe it is really time for me to give this job up?  Thank you so much Judith for saying you will be the new secretary.
