Folks, the first round of this thread shocked the Grumpys and I, with brminpin bidding up the auction to $200! That will take care of Christmas for a family of four, all on its own. So, we are closing a bit early, and opening another auction. If you 'go big or go home', this is the auction for you, round two. FOUR years of AK subscription benefits will go to the highest bidder of this VOA auction. Current subscribers can extend their present subscription, or give this to a friend. New subscribers will enjoy all the benefits of subscribing. Let's open the bidding at $20, and continue until 6:59 p.m. Wednesday, December 21, 2016. Thanks for looking, folks.
