Wow Kevin. Thanks for the history! Great book! Glad I took excellent care of

> I had to raise the cover price $5 to cover the difference.

> Now I have a couple left that will be signed for eBay and only #500

> Next year I will de-activate the book's website as it is not needed
> for the eBook..
> How 'bout that, Don!
