Melissa's husband here.  I mostly lurk, and I think this is my first post to
the list.  I'd like to thank you for the address.  What a
marvelous site.  PLUS, it's connected to the site so my user
information was already available (including shipping address and credit
cards).  It was marvelous.  My total bill came to 13.28 pounds with shipping
(about $22, though with the credit card exchange rate might get as high as
$25) that will get it here by Christmas.  This is way better than the $50 I
was looking at paying with others.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.

This is a Christmas gift, but it's not much of a surprise (that's okay, I
know what she's getting me, too).  I'll see if I can't intercept this
message on Melissa's machine just to preserve a *little* mystery, but that's
not always possible, either ("Ah darn, honey, I wasn't able to order it from
anywhere in time . . .").  If I'm unsuccessful, I'll just have to figure
another way to surprise her.  Seems I have some extra cash, now . . .
