Thank you, Lesley, Jim, and Nhu. I appreciate the kind words. I wasn't 
fishing for them, I threw in the statistics because they were handy and 
I thought the group might be interested, but I do appreciate them.

Please don't forget Karl Church, who packaged up all those seeds into 
the little envelopes. My name shows up on the emails, but he does at 
least as much work - every packet I send out, he packaged. My wife and I 
do that job for another exchange each fall, and I can assure you it's 
taking Karl a lot of time and eyestrain - and remembering not to cough 
or sneeze at the wrong time - to do that.

And of course there is Dell. Karl and I have worked on 4 SXes now. Dell 
just finished offering BX number 390 (yes, 390!), and he still does 
intake for the SXes too. Our contributions are tiny by comparison with his.
