  370. Well done, CC. Five years you have been proving that quality and quantity can go together.

  371. It’s been 5 years? Amazing. Time flies. Congrats on the track record. Well, with some 400 entered so far in the giveaway, that gives each of us a 1/4 of 1% chance of winning (probabilities might be slightly lower by time submission deadline reached). Them’s pretty good odds compared to provincial and hospital lotteries/draws. Count me in.

  372. Keep up the good work CC.
