Try looking in the RCA books.

Craving behind tang

I personally prefer hot Tang. I usually then crave crawfish. But thatís just me being born on the gulf coast and all. 

All kidding aside, if you donít find anything with a search, Iíll post whatever I can find in RCA.

Every time I drink TANG I find myself floating in 1/6th gravity on the Moon. I had to stop drinking TANG due to the inconvience of getting a ride back!!!!!!!!!!

Good luck with the carving!!

The KRA disks are a good resource.  I highly recommend them.
