      Is this first born exchangeable for cash (i.e. they claim a child takes
      about $1 million to raise from birth to college so I think that would be a
      fair measure *g*). Anyway have you tried asking Historic Enterprises for
      their documentation? as I know they sell a complete sewing kit (somehow I
      think buying something may help though)

      is out, but when the darkness sets in ,their true beauty is revealed only if
      there is light from within.
