      Hrant -- (if you're out there)

      This is really gorgeous.
      I'd order one, but don't have room in my wee miner's cabin here in Galena!
      I guess Berlow will have that one-up on me as well!
      (there are others, no doubt, too numerous to enumerate... er, too many to count :-)

      Good work indeed!

        Sometimes we get so carried away insisting on correct terminology
        that we let the subtle difference between "cases" and "drawers" or
        "Galleys" and "trays" obfuscate matter at hand.

        I even catch myself using the wrong terms at times.
