Atta' Boy Eddie, & thanks for thinking about the poor fools who have a position in your Company, and have been feeling kinda' foolish lately. Pass the Stoli..I'll drink a toast to you and all the other Smolyanskys. Hopefully, when you and the family do your stuff, I'll be able to afford the Beluga to go along with it. Right now, I'm stuck with Bologna on Rye.
