- Oh, Did I Wake You UP by Rob and Kids - Waypoint: GCNPNN
- Bridge Over Troubled Waters by Cermak - Waypoint: GCF00

If anyone should happen to find anything like this in the CenTex area, PLEASE PUT OUT THE WORD IMMEDIATELY. If we act as our own kind of "neighborhood watch" group, it might help nip something like this in the bud.Candy Lind candylind@...
