    IN the second place, Sunriser's <a href="http://www.globalaffairs.org/forum/showthread.php?s=&postid=18016#post18016">post </a> with 8 unique votes.

    And the winner is Stevent's post laden with sarcasm <a href="http://www.globalaffairs.org/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=3513">here</a> with 12 unique votes.

    Here's a twist. Mr. Stevent, who is an avid National Geographic's reader and a subscriber PM'ed me last night telling me that whomever comes in behind him will get the prize since he is abdicating his vote.

    I think a round of applause should go to Stevent for that gallantry notion.

    Sunriser, you get your wish (check out the last post in this <a href="http://www.globalaffairs.org/forum/showthread.php?s=&postid=17429#post17429">thread</a> to see what I am speaking of and what drove the contest in the first place--no it was not fixed ;)).

    I'd like to thank everyone who voted and certainly Martin, Stevent, and Sunriser for some excellent posts! :)

    :happy: CONGRATULATIONS, STEVENT!!! :happy:
    Wow, what a competition! Your winning post struck all of us from the old EL with humor, irony, and perhaps just a little sadness remembering what was. It also affirmed the beauty of what we've found here... a place that feels like home, with friends and family gathered around the hearth - teasing, flirting, arguing, fighting, celebrating, and generally just doing the things friends and family do. Congratulations!!

    ... and then...

    :nut: OH, MY GOSH!!! :nut:

    Needless to say, I am truly shocked! :eek: <small>(I've got to check the mirror and see if I bruised my chin when my mouth flew open...)</small> Stevent, thank you so very, very much - this is a wonderful gift, and I have tears in my eyes trying to type this!! :cry: <small>... sniffle... sniffle... HONK!!!</small> :)

    Finally, thank you, Leon, for providing us with a new home, and for graciously allowing us all to simply be... ourselves.
