I am just plum touched, near dumbstruck.

May I thank a few random people who appeared in this Sunday's newspaper: the
Stubbs-Gumps, the Stout-Bergerons, the Schrum and Pindars, also Helen
Johnson, born Martha Wilhemina Minx in Berlin in 1896, who probably became
"Helen Johnson," (there is only one marriage listed and that was to a
Dahlstrom) at Ellis Island?  Turned 108 on July 20, she is clearly no minor
