Ever since I posted my version, I've been thinking of people who certainly deserve to be mentioned and kicking myself for forgetting them. Then I realized how many people that would end up being . . . I guess that's why those people who win awards stand up there babbling and saying, "I want to thank...." everybody and their mother.

Thank you Portia, for pointing out the principal difficulty in participating in this little survey.
As all of you who have tackled Jeb's mandatory assignment have undoubtedly discovered, it is damn near impossible to decide on "the best" when the entire pool of candidates represent the cream of the crop.
Being pressed for time, I tended to name those folks with whom I've had the most recent contact. If I were to really take this assignment seriously, it would take me the balance of this year and most of 2001 to go back and review the insightful and inane, the helpful and hilarious, the critical and the criminal, and the facetious and fashionable.
Suffice it to say, the year has been a hoot. I'm looking forward to sharing a thought-provoking (and, at times, infuriating) 2001 with all of you.
Age is a very high price to pay for maturity.

Hehe I have become mainly a lurker since then however...Do you guys remember the **old** BB from like 2 years ago, when there were 500 people on it and other things? It was so small...tight...different. sniff, I miss it!

You and majical are my gratest achievement in life and to be able to stand up and say that my achievemet is not superficial but just talking about hings in life is the gratest gift I have ever been given. I have truly been blessed to know you and in time I wish to have the chanct to meet this butifull young lady I have heard so much about at the same time seen grow into this powerfull selfconfadent person. the truly majical part is sarah is reading your posts before ever knowing me and since you have known me. you are no longer afraid nomater how hard it is to speak up and say what you want. That in itself is a virtue and Im sure Majical can tell you how many times i have drilled that line into her head.
