Team Meteorite:

Don Merchant wonders about the result of early December's auction of two
copies of this book.

The first went for $55 and the 'signed' copy brought $60.

I used the proceeds and other funds for materials I have donated to the
'Fuerzo Publico' as well as the local 'Asociacion de Desarollo' in my Costa
Rican pueblo. I wait for school to re-open to turn over a dvd player and a
box of English-language books and magazines.

I have had extremely poor internet here since November and my update
message prior to the close of the auction appeared on the m-list AFTER the
auction closed.

I thank those who took me up on making an opening bid and special thanks to
the two winners for their contribution.

While in Florida for five days at Christmas at the home of my 86 year-old
mother, I discovered four more copies that I had packed for sale several
years ago that she had stashed under her bed, revealed only due to her
purchase of a new mattress. These will be up for sale this year or next.

Many of you, actually 499 of you, have purchased signed and numbered copies
of this book. Signed number #500, the last copy that will be sold, remains
to be offered in later days.

Meanwhile, the electrons have been precisely arranged to replicate the book
on both Amazon and Nook, with extra chapters. You will be pleased.
