RE: Happy Birthday Time!/ thank You


Bonnie, I do the same thing. Have no full set of dishes left (don't need
eight settings for one person) and only one winter coat. Gave the rest
away to people who didn't have one. Gave away most of the Merrill Lynch
duds to people for job interviews and such too.
