This special is set to close on the 1st, I believe. They're supposed to run 10 days each, but we're going to have the next one start a week after the previous, to allow people who already voted in the previous one early, a chance to do so without it really interfering with the regular 10s.

I thought we'd see if a few more voted first Kenne. I'm keeping count of edna's votes and I'll start on Ray's too.

I'll go and make a nuisance of myself and PT a few people who haven't voted yet. I'm sure they would hate to miss the opportunity of doing so.

We'll keep edna's PTT open for 2-3 more days.

I know many of you are very busy at this time of year, but I'm sure you wouldn't like to miss out on this opportunity to honor a great lady.

Please also remember to vote in Ray's PTT which is also current.
