Subject: Season's Greeting

                      SEASON'S GREETING!

        Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, our
        best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially
        responsible, low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral,
        celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within
        the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion
        of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with
        respect for the religious/secular persuasions and/or
        traditions of others, or their choice not to practice
        religious or secular traditions at all . . .

        and a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and
        medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the
        generally accepted calendar year 1999, but not without due
        respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose
        contributions to society have helped make America great,
        (not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any
        other country or is the only "AMERICA" in the western
        hemisphere), and without regard to the race, creed, color,
        age, physical ability, religious faith, choice of computer
        platform, or sexual preference of the wishee.

        (By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms.
        This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It
        is freely transferable with no alteration to the original
        greeting. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually
        implement any of the wishes for her/himself or others, and
        is void where prohibited by law, and is revocable at the
        sole discretion of the wisher.  This wish is warranted to
        perform as expected within the usual application of good
        tidings for a period of one year, or until the issuance of
        a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first, and
        warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance
        of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher.)
