    Then, I rescind my comments. This is quite different. I see, now, that he has been using the crayons to establish good will within the membership!

    Good use of resources and good management skills.

    I stand corrected.

    Why, it's pretty obvious!

    By, including a crayon in your packages to WavMixer, you have used a low-cost resource (the crayon) to foster camaraderie and good will with your recipient (WavMixer). Of course, in the context of this forum, that good will generates laughs, smiles, and a general sense of fun.

    However, were you operating as a regular retail establishment, that good will would help engender loyalty and return service.

    Sweetwater has figured this out by including candy with purchases. I've read several posts over the years from people who anticipate what candy they'll get with their next order!

    I got Tootsie Rolls when I ordered my Jackson! Now, you tell me...for the exact same price as any other online establishment, I get good service AND Tootsie Rolls? Now, who do you think gets my order!

    Eating a blue crayon without any red is like drinking a boiler maker with beer and no shot.. it's still just a beer.

    So eS.G. IS the crayonholic.
    Ahhh ... explains a lot.

    But I'm still confused why there is no Crayola sub committee. I like wax. Dental Floss Tycoon.
    Mr Pointy, you have beehives ?
