I think I've got seven tweets because a friend of mine signed up for it and she's called me about a hundred times. Can I tweet this or that. I said yes two or seven times I guess or something like that. I've never actually written one myself. I don't even know how to do it. Have you talked to Ilan ever join the Giving Pledge. Saw it once or twice. That's a lot of years ago. Seven or eight years ago I'm not. And he hasn't come to our annual gathering so I haven't seen him for seven or eight years.
