I have a big pot of organic coffee I'm brewing up (chocolate flavored, yum!), and
plenty of mugs!

Both Henry and Kevin are here.

Good job!

Yes, lots. 8 monitors, $5 each. Plus 14 pcs, a playstation, a pile of
keyboards and mice. There is also a big assortment of other things as
well. We have a big television set (it was originally an $800 color set,
but for some reason it only shows tv programs in black and white--I
imagine it just needs some service). We have an ice cream maker, a
blender, a mini-refrigerator, a microfiche reader, a light cart for
housr plants, an exercise machine, and an answering machine, among other
things. All for cheap!
