Billing's "Rock Soup"
By Bob Billings

Hi Robbie -- Thanks for sending the digest page.  We'll be fairly
active once I get Ginny's computer set up for the Internet as well as mine.

Rock Soup.  Have you ever heard the story Stone Soup?  It's as old as
storytelling.  Fellow has a "magic stone" that can make a soup with nothing
but it and water.  If you haven't heard it, I'll pass it on to you.
The stone became "Rock" because a Roc made a better logo than a stone.
Oh yes, why Rock Soup?  When we started in the business we were making
something from nothing....

There's also a story behind "toadhall" as well, but that's for later.
