Hey!  Me too!
('Course... my teensy, tiny cars were of such makes as Matchbox, Hotwheels,
Playmobile... But they got *great* mileage even with such things as being
buried under dirt cave ins, floods.  Come to think of it... those cars
survived just about every miniature catastrophe known to man---save rust and
the time my cousin blew the pickup truck up with that left over

Does anyone know how much gas mileage a Plymouth <sic> Prowler gets?  I can
well imagine LaCroix driving around in one of those things---the only car
more predatory looking (in my unknowledgeable opine) is the Batmobile.

<< When we
 got married, in 1966, a loaf of bread, pound of hamburger, or half-gallon of
 milk cost 25-30 cents.  A fairly decent little furnished apartment, in a
 complex with a swimming pool, cost us around $110 per month >>
I married in 1962...do you remember a tub of Breakstone's butter being
$.35????  What's that average price of butter now???  $2.79.  It costs more
than a gallon of gas for the Caddy.[notice. Caddy to stay on topic}.  Nick
could still afford it.

Subject: what I found

    Today I found two Forever Knight paperbacks in one of Melbourne's
    Book shop's Intimations of Mortality by Susan M. Garret &
    These Our Revels by Anne Hathaway-Nayne so if any FK fans
    in Australia wants a copy e-mail me off list and I'll buy
    and send you a copy.
    It's nice to see a FK novel being available in Australia hope
    its a good sign.

"You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I
thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible
things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them?
So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the
universe". Marcus, B5

Subject: Special NN &NJ Collages (and a few other things..)


I just wanted to tell you guys about two special collages I made. One is a
Nick and Janette one. It's very big, 20 pics layered together with some neat
effects. The other is a Nick and Natalie one, featuring the same effects. I
learned some new effects with Paint Shop pro and really enjoyed making
these. So if you're a Nick and Nat fan or Nick and Janette you might like to
make this your new desktop wallpaper. I hope you all like them! :)

And Guess what?? I have captured over 1,000 screen-shots! Isn't that
neato??! I've only done about a seasons worth though (25 eps) out of 70
total. I wonder how many I'll have when I finish completely? Any ways I hope
you all are enjoying them. I update them about every other day, unless it's
a holiday and I'm not stuck in school, then I can do more! Spring Break is
coming though in March! Goodie! The latest episodes up are "Outside the
Lines" and "A More Permanent Hell." I just added both today. "Partners of
the Month" is for my next update. Just keep checking back to see the latest

The petition as of now has 631 signatures. That's great everyone! Thank you
so much for signing! If there's any of you who haven't had the time yet just
send on over your name/state/country to me kris1228@s........ And if you
want to see the new look of the monthly petition (if you haven't already)
just click the new banner off my main page. If any of you have FK sites
you're welcome to post this petition banner on your pages to help spread the
word. Thank you!

Have a Good Knight-Filled Day! :)

Gasoline prices in the Cleveland area were down that low in Cleveland at
that time too.  I think that's why we're so much in shock now.

Someone on the news reported yesterday that they had put $15.00 in their
tank and it wasn't even full.

I remember paying about 33 cents a gal for gas for my motorcycle.  Nick
would have loved that.  The big cars and bikes were still very popular.
Maybe he got to ride with the Hell's Angels!

Do you think it's a possibility that Nick might actually take the bike out
of the loft and put it to a more practical use? :->

I remember seeing pictures of this on the news, but the community where I
was living was majorly agricultural, so except for the high prices, we were
immune to the embargo.  We had to have gas for the farm equipment, so I
guess the government had ways to make sure it was available to us.

Subject: Sorry

I just discovered that the story I'm posting to fkfic ("A Matter of
Perspective) has MIME and HTML on & it's causing the sections to appear
twice - once with all the MIME formatting.  Yuck!!.

I apologize to any of you who are trying to read it & am working to correct
the problem before I post again.

Thanks, McLisa, for explaining what was causing the problem.

calander.  I will be getting the money order Monday morning and mailing
