Mitch! You're making my head hurt! :-) My brain isn't used to all this exercise - I think I'm having a brain cramp!

Keep 'em coming! I love it!

Wow, I threw in the "close cover before striking" just to be silly. I really thought that the answer was going to be the signs on the restroom doors. I'm a genius and I didn't even know it! :)
