I like the idea of a book. I have printed and placed in 8 ea 3 in binders
the subjects I like best having rejected all of no value like " happy new
year " postings. With the few postings I have, just how can you make a book
????. I bet you have enough to fill a box of 50 CD disks after you separate
it into subjects. Do it if you can, Just tell me the cost of the CD's. The
job is beyond what an old man can do. So get to it kids, go go go
