    I specially like numbers 19, 23, 30, 35, and 37…

    Seriously, how can you go wrong with including the word ‘monkeys’ on your list?

    Kimbo, yuo should come by our place on a Saturday night to learn about hockey. I think I’m obsessed with it. We’ve actually educated numerous persons (mostly female) over the years here and it has all been good. I don’t like the taste of beer either.
