Hi Sandra,

Glad you are getting as much of a kick out of visiting the HostaLibrary/ FL 
Auction as we are putting it together!  This guy Bill Phennet seems to have 
an endless supply of Chick  memorabilia.  That Chick has more talents than he 
lets on.  He is so modest.

We are getting LOTS of traffic so there is a lot of interest in what people 
have donated. When we put up the first item last Saturday the counter read 
68,684.  The counter now reads 102,943!  That is more than 34,100 hits in 11 
days!  I can't wait to see the fireworks on Friday and Saturday night!  It 
should be some site to see.

I hope everyone remembers that we are splitting the proceeds 50/50 between 
the HostaLibrary and FIRST LOOK. Last year FL helped as the Hosta Journal 
went to 3 issues. This year we are showing our appreciation to Bob Axmear and 
all who volunteer to make the HostaLibrary the place we turn whenever we need 
information of the hosta variety.

We continue to get donations from unexpected fans of the HostaLibrary with 
notes of appreciation and encouragement.  If anyone would like to donate to 
the cause, you can send a note to Bill Meyer via his  njhosta@hotmail.com  
Email address or to BobAxmear at bobaxe@sbtek.net  and he will forward them 
to Bill for posting.  

We have gotten many questions about the confusing CLOSE dates and times 
listed with each item.  It is confusing because items cannot be posted via 
the auction software with a specific closing date and time that we select.  

All items in the category FIRST LOOK AUCTION   will close Sat. Feb 15, 2003  
at 19:00:00  according to the time stamp that the auction stamps on each bid. 
 We will only accept bids placed before 19:00:01  PST.  The auction software 
runs on Pacific Standard Time. That is 7Pm on the West coast, 8PM mountain 
time, 9PM central time and 10PM eastern time.  Even if a higher bid comes in 
after 19:00:00 we will only honor the bid prior to 19:00:01.

Anyone who thinks they might want to place a bid needs a password ahead of 
time.  You can get one by going to the HostaLibrary then to the Auction then 
at the bottom click on NEW REGISTRATION.  Pick a name or HANDLE / ALIAS .  
Then enter a valid Email address.  Fill in your mailing address info and 
click  RegisterMe.  You're done.  A temporary Password will be sent to the 
Email address you gave.  You can then go back and click on CHANGE 
REGISTRATION. Fill in the temporary password they sent you and then fill in 
one you can remember easily. You can enter as many registrations as you wish. 

A big thank you to all who have given us some VERY special items so far. 
Every item is very much appreciated!

Sandra....thanks for your encouragement and see you at the auction!  =:-)

PS....the statue posted with the ADULTS ONLY collection is NOT Chick.  We 
hear there is a Chick statue but we are still looking into getting our hands 
on one ( so to speak).
