	I would like to 2nd what Alden is saying... Everything holds true.

	BTW Wissa. If you can't make a practice and need to have a backup  
martial show up, just twist my arm. It just gives me another reason I  
should truck on down...


	We should talk about carpooling. I have a van, and Treon works with  
me, so that makes three fighters that _should_ be going every Tuesday.  
Peer pressure works.
