Yes,  indeed, this was ARISS contact #1000.  I had the luck of the draw to 
be the  control operator for ARISS contact #1 in Burbank, IL back on 
December 21,  2000.  Now once again, the luck of the draw has allowed me to be the 
mentor  and moderator for this 1000th contact.  Here is to the second 1000
