  1. That was fun..It’s funny that Mad MIke should pop up now, Frank. I just recently got round to spending the one dollar bill that I won off him on the ABM Show, which has been sitting in my spare room for years. If I remember rightly it went towards a delicious Latte for at Newark. ! I came home with a solitary five dollar bill which I now consider to be the heir to Mike’s one dollar throne, and which allows for inflation for many years to come.

  2. It must be pretty cool to live in such a big city that you can find a big mall 30 minutes from your job after many years 😀
    And great show!
