Well, bless your heart, Don.   Believe it or not, resin really is a  
natural product, and you can't get a DSL connection for a flat $10 a  
month.  If I went on and on about the best gum preservative, or  
whatever--  would I be considered taking things too seriously, or  
does one get that label only if correcting you?  And in case you  
missed my little smiley faces, so you know I'm not being too  
serious-- here's another:  ;)
