Cargoo has been a part of my life for almost thirteen years, and now I have a word for it.

Talintio was my favorite of this bunch. Nice work, Janna!

Too funny! Docs ought to prescribe you instead of Prozac. It'd be much more effective. Of course, it'd also be addictive. There's that.

Grace: I think my favorites are Bulamp, Chneak, and Tycep. And Talintio.

Marilyn: LOL! You're welcome!

Chris: Poor Talintio. In all fairness, though, it WAS a nice table. :)

PattiKen: And on the downside, I don't think I'd be covered by insurance...
