    I tried to limit myself to 2 selections. Then I found myself torn between 3. Finally I ended up voting for 4, and now I wish I had selected a 5th. :p

    Excellent contest! Starting to think maybe we should ditch the "topic" more often and just leave entries open for anything and everything from any time. :)
