Re: Re: Holiday Shopping/ Rex Begonia


Oh, Gene, I apologize.  I hoped no one would notice.  My nephew, Sam, still
in Iraq, turned 21 yesterday.  When he was 16 or 17 he made up that moniker
(I will not call it a handle!) for his email address, thinking it was cool
or something, I just don't know.  I have tried to get him to change it to
something more mature, but no luck.

Once in a blue moon when I send an email it somehow switches my "from" line
from my default address to his.  I don't know why it doesn't get bounced
back by hort.net for not being a member.
