    I wanted to issue a public thank you to Dagabu. So, THANKS DAG! You have been a source of inspiration for me, and no doubt others as well. Your assistance in organizing the auction, and your generosity in donating your go-getter pump are both demonstrations of your selflessness, and kind heart. Thank you for everything. You rock!
