Jer, what a coincident, I wonder that same thing earlier. It looks like Charlie Chaplin trying to play pool with a broom handle. The sign above says ONEY? Lent with a symbol inbetween. Looks like an old store front. Did you zoom in on it with your browser?

You're right...it's Chaplin from the film "The Pawn Shop (or 'Broker')". I'm a huge Chaplin fan. The sign reads "Money Lent." It's cut off in the original photo, too. Charlie is trying to shoot pool (with a broom) with the pawn shop symbol. He's got a great looking back hand and arm. You can tell he's played before.

The pic is probably too small to really post here. I just like it a lot...I plan on switching them around as I go along, anyway.

See you in the board room!

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;You might want to re-think that Dr. D, you might be "buying a ticket on the Titanic". Unless you're a heck of a "bailer", MS's boat is currently "taking on water" and presently is listing to port. ***Lester***
