A Personal Note from Robin
I try to attend AVN (which is held in Las Vegas) the same week as the Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
In 2000, I attended CES and I visited the booth of a company which produced "Genie" remote actuators. As part of their advertising campaign, they had Barbara Eden (of "I Dream of Jeannie" fame) as their spokesperson and they had drawings for several "presents". I was lucky enough to win what they thought was their "Grand Prize": a beautiful, velour reversable jacket. I think the jacket was second place award because along with the jacket I got a kiss on the cheek from Barbara Eden!
