"The next Cirque auction would be fun - first bid wins! :)"

I agree. Next auction, first bid minimum bid $10,000.00 U.S. Cash only. Or Euro equivalent. On EVERY item. No bidders on that item, we revert to normal auction process. It sure would make my job a lot eiser. All I gotta sell is two items, and we PASS last years total!

P.S. Speaking of which; START looking in yer drawers and in those old cardboard boxes under your bed for the stuff dreams WERE made of. Remember when ya bought that beautiful shinny imported aluminum bit? Well,..... now she's used. BUT NOT used up! Recycle her at Our very own CIRQUE CHARITY AUCTION. Proceeds to be divvied up 75%/25% to Operation smile ( http://www.operationsmile.org ) And an organization to benefit multiple sclerosis research. PLEASE be generous. Last year we somehow managed to raise a whopping $11,500 for charity. ELEVEN THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS! Each operation costs about $250; so that was 42 fixed little faces. Makes me wanna cry. NEW IDEA: get more stuff for me to sell! Go to your local bike shop and explain what we do. Get um to dig around, send it to me at the venue in Virginia and we'll put the stuff to good use. Hit um up for straight bread too; the power of asking is AMAZING! Ask and ye shall receive!

Thanks,
