Nice stats... I don't think those are going to apply to you. I went low because of weather but you will probably prove me wrong with your knowledge...

Given the many knowledgeable participants and yet a wide st. dev., I'd say your guess is as good as any other!

Awesome! Excellent job, Richard. I had a feeling it would be more than my guess.
Woohoo. I am a winner, but the reality is that you are the REAL winner with your amazing setup and "Fruit Fuel" formula.
