      Gerry,

      My secret? I have the old (circa 1993) Common Sense Catalog. I never
      throw anything away, which is why I also have at least five home-made
      boats scattered around my property. I did finally get rid of my 1964
      Volkswagon Beetle a few years ago, but it broke my heart....
