      That would be a wonderful upgrade. What are the rules? One entry per day? Per household?

      If I win, I'll sell all my current mandolins, and never want for another mandolin as long as I live. I promise.

      Hmm, I should see if that works on my wife for simply going out and buying a Collings after this contest is over.

      You best keep one hand behind your back with fingers crossed when you say that. And maybe turn up the TV real loud and switch on the vacuum cleaner, blender, and garbage disposal.

      An FYI. We just crossed 6K folks that have registered, non-duplicates and traffic is still buzzing.
