Dear Mr. Dewey -
It is with deep regret that we must inform you that we have revoked your award.

We had printed the check, signed it and addressed the envelope. Then we learned of your "unauthorized review, use, disclosure or distribution" of the confidential email which has voided your eligibility.
The check will be awarded to the runner-up.

Regrettably,
The Award Team
(Microsoft Corporation)

"Interesting that Microsoft uses a Gmail account."

That's nothing, apparently my auto insurance company maintains an office in the Czech Republic. At least that's where the e-mail I got from them today originated....

By the way, what is Microsoft and can I put one on my T?

Rich - Haha. Memories...when I was a kid. When we told my Dad "I'm hungry" or "I'm tired" etc. He'd stretch out his hand "Hi hungry, I'm Jim. Glad to meet you". Uggghhh.

Andria, my late wife and her siblings were not allowed to say "I'm hungry" when they were growing up in Holland. Their parents had lived through the depression followed not too long after by five years of occupation of the country. Their mother would answer, "You don't know what it is to be hungry." They had to use the Dutch equivalent of (roughly) "I'd like to eat."

Rich and Andria---Our parents must have read the same book! Our resort had a natural sparkling water spring that we pumped to a fountain out by the road. One night when I was already in my PJ's ready for bed I asked my Dad, "Would you get a drink of soda water for me?" "When he said, "Sure!" I was quite surprised, but out the door he went. Came back in and told me, "Thank you David, that was a good drink!" "NOOO DAD!!!! For ME!!" I forget if he'd actually gotten me a glass while he was out, probably did, but I remember the lesson!
Rich, did you see my suggestion to Steve that he contact you to do some artwork for a "I saw the Geezer" memento?

I missed your suggestion about artwork for Steve. A quick search found it. It is an interesting idea as Steve has a great face for a caricature.

Dick My wife went thru WW2 in Hungary, and she had a Dad that was farmer. They had to bury some of the food to keep from being taken by force. I guess that the Soldiers would take what ever was loose. So she was in that kind of life style. In 1946 they were kinds asked if they wanted to stay or leave and her father decided to leave and in ten (10) years in Germany they all had jobs and a house built. By 1956 she my Wife was in the USA and we were married in Dec '56.
It is funny we were just talking about what happened then 42 to 46 in Europe. Then I read your post. !Oh I think I saw a Sq and Compass on you rear license plate

Bill, hearing the stories from my parents-in-law made me appreciate the difference between being in Europe during the war and being here. The Dutch refer to the winter of 1944-45 as the "Hongerwinter" (I assume I don't need to translate).

You saw the license plate correctly. Picked it up when I went to the East.

David & GR, regarding: "GR Hmm, some of your responses are similar to what I thought of sending!! Scarey!!"

As my grandmother used to say about my aunt and I: "Two great minds from the same gutter"

Re: all else to us kids - "and I had to walk 5 miles to school uphill - both ways - one way in the snow and the other in the desert ........."

Can you get a glass of soda water for ME too?
