What. Have. We. Done?? Simple math on the Contest Entries ...

Plus comments. And our responses. And Contest reminders and 'house-keeping' ...

The lucky among us can send in some coins to keep BC "on the air".

I want to keep everybody here "on the air".

I really want to see all of you listed here in left and center of the home page. Seeing you get moved to "In Memorial" ... that just hurts. And it's really rough on you and your people ...

Or worse, you just go silent, and we never know ...
