Personally ..... I'd love to do the calendar.  I like the idea of a
perpetual one too .. I have one of those right now on my desk .. its just
the date, no year, no day of the week .. so it can be used for any year
(even has feb 29th ;).

I'll volunteer to do this ... if its something we all think is worthwhile

As far as printing .. it *might* be cheaper to print it in Canada .. cos of
our dollar .. however, usually printing in the US is far cheaper than what
it costs us up here.  IOW, despite the dollar, it's probably better to print
it in the States.
