Hey Mike,

Considering I wrote this to Dean, I feel impelled to reply to you for your
uneccessary reply.

Mike, these are two completely different situations. Dean posted his
material to the list for SALE, alluding to the fact that it might be Lunar.
We announced to the List that we found a small stone that could be a Lunar
but WERE NOT offering it for sale and that it will be sent to the lab before
offering any.

Go back and READ the posting before you spout off again. This is just
another attempt by you to start some of your typical childish ranting.

Best regards,
