GREET ONE ANOTHER WITH…
When you see a few thousand people most of whom you see only once a year and some who are pretty important in your overall life...people who are dear to you...some who are not real dear but you like a lot - and many who when you see them for this one time a year it is walking through display aisles or down a hallway. So here's the official FHU Lectureship lines (You can hear them anytime).

One of my uncles here (oh, I only have one here) suggested you could even have a tape recorder with three tracks on it and just hit the appropriate one.
