Re: NFC: RE: RE: buyer for exotics

And a good idea it is, so move the decimal point over to the right three
places and make that a $20.00 thought.
 When the river/coastal clean up started in the early 70's, I remember the
small turn out for the "Trash Picking day" well, and some of the folk and/or
their kids who laughed at us then are out there now cleaning the coast and
rivers up.  Every movement starts slow and builds every year.
    Now that's my $0.04 thought (I took your $0.02 and doubled it, that's
how it all starts.) JiM C.
