Congratulations Jim for this remarkable effort on behalf of a bunch of folks 
most you don't know other than on the screen.

But isn't that the greatness of the LUG? Being friends with so many people 
we haven't had the warmth of a hand shake and a "Hi, I'm...."  whomever one 
might be?

We laugh and cry together, we feel the loss of our pets and loved ones, as 
well as the many nice things that happen within our families. It must be an 
amazing collection of folks who stay and play together, not to forget we've 
cried together. Yes and we've shared ticked off moments together, but what 
the hell I can't think of a better bunch of folks I rather be stranded on a 
desert island with! :-)

Given the state of the world these days with all it's bigotry, death and 
destruction one onto another face to face. Here we are as a group on screen, 
heaven knows what mixture of humans,  learning from one another, our 
pictures in a book together, giving assistance to each other with no thought 
of "pay back or profits in pocket!"

It's truly an amazing thing that we in a sort of reality way are a family of 
strangers helping and assisting each other as though we're brothers and 
sisters! If nothing else it shows humans who wish to cooperate together can 
and do.

Too bad the rest of the world can't learn a lesson from the LUG!

See you all next year!
