Maybe ABT had an interest in the company before it went public. I'm looking for my ABT 100 year almanac to see if I find something in there. The early 80's seem to ring a bell. 400 million also seems like a figure that I remember. I'm sure there are some ABT old timers out there who may recall if there is anything to it or not.
Pretty cold up this way. No snow, lakes are good for ice skating without the snow cover. Having to auger thru quite a bit of ice to do the ice fishing thing. You'll have to try it sometime, go into the ice shanty, auger a hole or two, sit back in the chair and relax.
