Hey Tom,

Please keep the group informed on the progress of your 'experiment'.  There
are so many controversial products out there these days and this is
certainly one of them, as we've all seen on this group(!)  There's nothing
better than hearing about personal experience with these things.  I was
planning to do the same thing this fall.
