Happy 2000 from Dalai Lama

(Note from Daven:  Okay, I admit it, I’m addicted to email.  I LOVE getting it and reading it.  Sometimes I get chain emails too.  And in those cases, I usually delete it as soon as I know what it is.  However, this showed up in my Inbox right around the start of the New Millenium (and I know that it doesn’t really start until 2001) and it caught my eye.  I copied it and sent it along to a lot of other people, and I got some good responses to it, despite the fact that it is a Chain-email.  And thus SPAM, was born.  LOL)

Happy 2000 from Dalai Lama
