My guess would be 1984, though it could be early 1985.

Well.... what year was it??? :Fool:

!rulez! Hugh Janus has left the building cali so the likelihood of getting an answer from him is remote saying the least, unless one of ilkos stand ins would like to reply.

i would think that it's unncessary to trouble them at this time of the evening because i can answer the question myself.....

the answer is what you cali and rob237 said 1985.................... B) !bravo!

Thank you Bip, that would have driven me bonkers not knowing the answer. I know the re-election of Reagan was Nov. 84, but I wasn't sure whether the inauguration was held at the end of the year, or the beginning of the following year. I guess I need to pay a little more attention to politics....or maybe it's best to just keep ignoring them!!! ;)
