What the heck, called my PR man, spent the last of my savings and did this,

Hi Bob;

I never thought of that. It is too late now, I am out of funds. I will have to use the old reappearing dollar trick.

Took them thousands of years to pick out of Italy. I would guess they would pick predominantly Catholic countries. America is predominantly Protestant.

It is a social network, like Facebook, except things go quite differently there. All the celebrities have a Twitter account, but, of course, everyone can have one.

But, I am guessing you already knew all this.
