YUP!  It sure was.

I am in the maple syrup camp.

I don't think that is the physics of it.  Unfortunately, I have no idea how
often Saturn and Jupiter meet.  I am pretty sure that regardless of whether
Saturn and Jupiter could really be in alignment or not; they are.

They were called the Black Lodge.

The ring on Cooper's finger may not be so insignificant.  Those of us who
shelled out $8.95 for the Cooper autobiography as told by Scott Frost know 
that the origin of the ring is quite mysterious.

Yes, I agree the Giant is pretty much useless.  Like I said in other postings
the Giant could be saying "No!" to just about anything in the world.  Not
very useful information for Cooper.

The Ben Horne mystery is a big one.  I just don't think it has anything to
do with BOB.  My specualtion currently leads me to believe it to be one of
the following people: Mrs. Heyward, Jerry, Johnny, or Doc Heyward.

He basically did.

I don't think the Black Lodge sent Annie, but WE is definitely going to take
advantage of the parallels between what is happening in TP and what did
happen in Pittsburgh.  I think BOB has achived physicality and WE is merely
a cohort/convert.

I think so.  Once again this ties in with the interconnectedness that I 
believe exists in the show.  Nothing occurs without some kind of reasoning.
Although these events may seem to be totally unrelated right now, I think
people will be surprised by how connected everything really is.  I somehow
feel that the deaths of Theresa Banks and Laura Palmer, the intrigue
between the Packards and the Eckhardts, the Coop and WE relationship are all
connected and important to the current storyline.
