Win a free bumper sticker. Somewhere in these web pages is hidden a "secret word". If you find the place where it says "This is the secret word", send me an email. Each time I move the secret word to a different place on the pages, I will award a free bumper sticker to the first three or four people who tell me what the word is. But you have to include the code word, and your snailmail address in the message. [Note: as long as this notice is up here, the contest is still on. Each time someone finds the secret word I will award the prize and then move the secret word to somewhere else. We have had dozens of winners so far!]
