And yours are powerfully enlightening! ;D

I am serious about the logo too.  I did an online search and found wattworks.com in Ohio with some brilliant products.  Check out their magnetic fireplace and window covers. I love their hybrid tricycle too.

You'd best go lie down for while Donnah.

After all that punning you'll be sleepun soon.

You really should should have held some in reserve, using so much of your repertoire in one go was a pundamental mistake.

It's OK as long as it doesn't result in another Punic War.

There was an old girl of Devizes,
Whose forte was in little surprises;
She let you come near,
Then cried: 'Bless us, my dear,
Your eyes are of different sizes.

Long? Certainly you must be aware that size is not important.
