Purple Thumbs Up/Down Awards

This is something new I'm starting here. Well, I say new, but it's really old...ish.  The Back Story:A long time ago in on a purple site far far away, I started the Purple Thumbs Up Award for purple things I liked. I reported on various purple products to let my readers know if they were worth the money or should be avoided and what exactly was good or bad about them.  Those of you on the Grape News mailing list know that I review purple products to let you know how they measure up. This will be kind of like that only...
