WOW!!! So many messages on the topic of a Secretary card. I wonder if the
original poster works with Kevin Montgomery. This would be a great
practical joke in most offices... well may be not in *some* offices, now
that I've read a few of the posts <hehe>.

Any thread that will bring Marilynne out of her hidey-hole is worth a skim.

Back to the grind.
