    Fred…could we just chocolate-coat our sardines?  That way they could go alongside the guac…I mean, if you REALLY want that sort of thing.

    Great Scott

    Congrats, Gunnar.  You posted some really neat tunes with some cool titles.  Well done!

    But where are you.  I have looked everywhere for you tonight but I can’t find you anywhere.


    Yes, Peggy but be sure to melt the caramel over top.


    Where in the world is Gunnar?  He could be anywhere in the world right now.  Hopefully he won’t stay away too long.


    Ohhhhhhh noooooooo…… I’ve almost missed the whole thing! (Excuse me, excuse me) who are all the motorcycle people. I had to make my way around all the Harleys


    Oh Fred…just be careful with those concoctions…my advice…don’t, do not add the fireball.

    Great Scott

    I LOVE fairy dust, but only if it’s made from freshly ground fairies.  Yeah, please save some for the end.


    Congrats to Ed, Dave, Kaleigh and Gunnar! All well deserved!


    Oh Hi, Angela…just watch out for my tricycle please and enjoy some…some of that awful stuff we’ve been eating.


    I Give Dr. John a great big round of applause for his wonderful gift of this website that helps so many of us along our journeys. THANK YOU!


    Scott…I can run outside, catch some fairies, and grind them up quickly.

    John (BGD)

    (applause, applause applause)  Yes, John…great website and endless amounts of learning to be gotten here.  Nice folks too.


    Oh didn’t you even save us one to divide?


    Congrats Cricket! You’re an inspiration! And standing ovation to John!


    Save me the venom next time, ok?


    What, did I miss something?


    YAY! Cricket, Peggy! YAY YAY YAY! I’m so happy for you. You so much deserve this award. Yes!

    John (BGD)

    I would like to thank all of you who contributed and of course to all of this year’s winners! I am extremely proud of each of you and I hope that you will continue to produce and to improve in the new year.

    OK, please put your masks back on before leaving the table, and Great Scott, I’m not talking about the scary clown mask you donned last year and chased me around the building until I nearly died of terror and exhaustion. Please do NOT do that again.

    I love you all and I hope to see more of you this year!

    John Cockman
