    Speaking of SPAM:
    1937: SPAM is born! The first can os SPAM rolls off the production line. Originally called HORMEL Spiced Ham, the company holds a contest to create a name as distinctive as the taste. By combining the "sp" from spiced with the "am" from ham, the winner comes up with SPAM. Top Prize: $100
    1945: SPAM saves Russia. That is, it feeds Russian soldiers during World War II, according to Nikita Khrushchev in his book. Meanwhile, former British Prim Minister Margaret Thatcher calls SPAM a "war-time delicacy." (What was she thinking?)
    1955-1957: SPAM goes global baby. Hormel establishes agreements for the manufacture of SPAM Luncheon Meat with companies in Ireland, Canada, England, and Venezuela.
    1959: One billionth can of SPAM sold! Why, if you laid all those cans end to end, they'd circle the globe 2-1/2 times.
    1959: Hawaii joins the union. SPAM finds inself at the center of many a celebration. Why? Because Hawaiians eat more SPAM per person than any other state in the union.
    1968: Hormel buys a hydrostatic cooker to keep up with the incredible demand for SPAM. The huge device requires only one operator and makes 350 SPAM cans per minute. On a smaller note, Hormel introduces the 7-ouce can of SPAM.
    1962: John Glenn, aboard Friendship VII, is the first American to orbit the Earth. Meanwhile, SPAM is in orbit too. Almost two billion cans have been sold-enough cans to circle the world five times over.
    1969: SPAM in the Land Down Under. A joint venture to market SPAM in Australia gets under way.
    1970: SPAM makes its TV debut in a sketch by the classic comedy troupe from England, Monty Pythons's Flying Cirucs. Monty's The Green Midgets Cafe server egg and SPAM; egg, bacon and SPAM; egg, bacon, sausage, and SPAM...well, you get the idea.
    1971: Hormel introduces Smoked SPAM.
    1980: Three billionth can of SPAM sold.
    1986: Four billionth can of SPAM sold.
    1987: SPAM celebrates its' 50th birthday.
    1992: SPAM Lite, SPAM Less Sodium, SPAM Smoke Flavorded, and good old SPAM is Hormels lineup.
    1998: The SPAM can changes, featuring a new gold can, and poly film label with a photo of the delicious SPAMBURGER.
    1998: www.spam.com is born.

    You forgot to mention that this year Spam officially changed it's name to SPAM. This was to avoid confusion with unsolicited e-mail.

    Hmm...It seems that the Chicago Force.org server is down. That is where our banner graphics are stored, so until it is back up, we won't be able to view the banner :(

    No, it's just a banner. I just felt like messing with it. I got sick of that curve, so I angled it off a bit.

    Jeff, I decided to veto your suggestion to change the font. I just can't find one that I like better. This one just has the "pazzaz" that I'm looking for.

    :D
