Hi all,
Just got this message (from a friend of a friend), and since it may affect both Pat and Max, I thought I'd pass it along. Don't know if this will lead anywhere, but you never know...

>One cool thing I learned (and which I will now share). We talked

>Anyway, I'm going to play STONEAGE ROMEOS all day in honor of that

Anybody know anything more about all this?
