==Image:2006-0327-LongBeach1.jpg== Template:OwnWorkBoilerPlate --MartinGugino 20:59, 28 March 2006 (UTC) I am seeing what this "OwnWorkBoilerPlate" expands to. Hmmm. It didn't work. Oh -- I need to add this to my talk page in WikiCommons, not WikiNews.
I got a good smile and a chortle over the bumper sticker you added to my UserPage. I finally noticed the addition when I checked my 'Watch List' tool button. It would be remiss of me if I didn't advise you, that your User Page is generally considered your space to post whatever strikes your fancy, and the discussion is used by others to address you with a message. I happen to like your bumper sticker very much, and will keep it! Best regards. -Edbrown05 04:38, 9 April 2006 (UTC)
