The Great American Smokeout
November 16, 2000

The American Cancer Society organized the first Great American smokeout in 1977. The purpose was to encourage smokers to quit for one day to prove that they could do it. Each year, more Americans try to quit smoking on the day of the Great American Smokeout than any other day of the year - including New Year's Day.

The Great American Smokeout takes place each year on the third Thursday of November (the 16th this year). Millions of Americans will stub out their cigarettes on that day. So if you smoke, please join them.

For more information about the Great American Smokeout or for tips on how to quit smoking, please contact:

Who's doing what, when and where.

Oh my goodness, looks who's got one in the oven. Tarqness has announced that she is expecting a little bundle of joy in May, somewhere between her birthday and her first year wedding anniversay. Congratulations Kim and Darryl.

Gee the stork is a little busy right now. DT Lady has also announced a visit. No, no no! She is going to be a <gasp> grandmother. Her daughter-in-law is pregnant with her first child. Boy or girl? Stay tuned!

Here's an update on my engagement. No date has been set yet. Don't worry you didn't miss getting an invitation, I haven't sent any. Just looking through all those catalogs and trying to pick the style, and color, and blah blah..... I could just scream. Maybe we should elope.
