you're absolutely right, why bother? We're working on more important things right now and above all in my one post I made a promise not to spin anymore of these, I'm certainly not going to break this promise especially over this.

I may have over reacted, I had a very hard test of faith this weekend, our daughter was involved in a shooting that missed her head by mere centimeters, damaging her hearing and her ear. Needless to say emotions and faith were at a peak this weekend and I think this just pushed me back to the edge a bit. She is home with us after spending a night in observation and since Marcy is a registered nurse, they figured she was better home with her family as there was more trauma than physical damage.

On a lighter note I've spoken with Sam, seems nice, conversations were of positive aspect, but maybe I'm still naive or green, I would figure a commander of a ship would decide what path it takes and whose cargo it decides to carry. Who leads up Penguin and makes the final purchasing decisions? It's a shame because with the customer base they do have they could turn this whole thing around for Penguin IMHO.

Sorry for the earlier rant.

No need to apologize - hope your daughter has a speedy recovery. If you decide to make an inexpensive set include me in right along with Bill. I only have one question (that's proably elementary to most)...who is the 'angel'?

Not sure why Bill referred to him as the "angel" I would look at him more as the "fireman" since he's hosing everyone.

Thank you for your wishes for our daughter, they are much appreciated and taken to heart.

"Angel" as in person who contributes funds. However, I think your ****ogy is truer.

I am shocked and surprised to hear about your daughter's near miss. I am very glad that it was a miss. I know how loud a gun shot sounds and the aftermath on a person's hearing. With younger people, it can be very painful. I hope she recovers from the trauma soon.

Thank you Bill, the bullet took the tip of her ear and singed her hair that how close it was. Now a true Angel was watching over her and our family.

Now if all this isn't enough, I found an auction seller on a popular auction site <grin> selling off RNT II Alluminum Monti's. I know he has at least 1 more set or I think he does, the picture he uses is a blurry picture of our brushed alluminum Monti cup, and sells them as Original Rings N Things Alluminum Monti cups. 3 tell tale signs, 1 original Montis did not come in brushed finish, 2 all cups that I'm aware of from the original RNT were MagicPoxied <not sure of spelling> I feel a swatter coming on for that one LOL. Just wanted to give the heads up on this one. RNT II does not have anything to do with this dealer or his representation.

There's nothing wrong with cheap plastic cups as long as they are not marketed as "the best, great, professional only, top quality, or serious cups for the serious performer" ... that sort of thing.

penquin being the straight-shooting place they are certainly wouldn't do anything like that.

I have a feeling that they will feel remarkably like the Empire plastic cups.

I don't know whether I would drink out of these or not. If there is any alcohol in the drinks, it might cause the plating to go into solution to a small degree. I know you are kidding about that.

Did you notice that they ad copy actually does say...

"serious cups for serious performers" ?

tsk, tsk, tsk.
I would say that is a bit of a stretch. Ok, a huge stretch.
