I forgot to add the event of Kodak pulling out of the "instant camera" business.

Where were you - when Kodak needed you??? (jokingly said of course).

This is the third time I've seen this tonight, it must be zooming around the blogosphere.

And you know that your email says "Kelly" so I forget until I visit that you're Terri. It throws me totally off :)
