    What part of Illinois are you from? Was in western Chicago suburbs for years before moving to the land of fruitcakes and nutjobs.

    How small of a world. I graduated from St. Charles high, our business was in Aurora, and my uncle ran his business in Oswego, where the Kindercare is now located on the corner of Rt 34 and Rt. 71. He died in 2000 a year before we moved.

    We used to see pleqanty of Moon stickers on Arnie the Farmer Beswicks A/FX car when he ran the Oswego drag strip in the 60's and 70's.

    I was referring to the move to California. But then, those fruitcakes and nutjobs are one of the prime reasons for our success!

    Jon:

    You're right, but that's still not to say it drive me up the fyooken wall most of the time. When they call it the left coast, that's putting it very mildly.
