Okay.  I have to ask now... and I dread asking it.  Was your brother
Bob Fogg?  I dread because I knew him growing up, and I'm sorry to hear
he is no longer with us.

I grew up in Westboro, MA and did a stint in the branch of the explorer
scouts that DG ran at their education center.  I learned a LOT from Bob,
and really got an appreciation for the big systems with my experience
there with AOS/VS....
