    Once again, it's time for "Who Am I?", the guessing game where you guess the subject. As usual, the winner gets a chunk of my gratitude.

    And now, let's begin the shindig....

    This week's subject is a THING.

    CLUE #1: I was created by four people in a back room in Boston just before the Civil War.

    That's what I was thinking, with that Civil Was Sub that they found a few years ago and laid to rest the Confederate Solders.

    Geez, this is definitely a toughie. Tougher than I thought.

    But, this will end it all...

    And once again, DoublEE wins!

    The answer is indeed John Hancock, founded in 1862 and is now owned by Canadian insurer Manulife.

    New contest next week!
