Who knows what is next!
Andy Warhol would not be able to explain all this with his quote about all of us getting our 15 minutes of fame. He would have to come up with something else.

Comments, suggestions, and additionall ideas are welcome. Also, I may be available to repeat this presentation at your gathering or function.
