In addition to our guests here at the New York Stock Exchange, I'd like to welcome those joining us now, by webcast, to McCormick's April 17, 2002 (sic)  A World Of Flavor Investor Conference. And to begin -- well, let's go to the next slide there. Okay. As we begin, I'd like to remind you that during the course of our remarks, we'll be making certain forward-looking statements. And in that regard, I would like to refer you to the information on this page. In addition, we've included materials in your binders and the online slides that provide a reconciliation of any non-GAAP information to our GAAP measures. So no further delay, it's my pleasure to turn the floor over to Alan Wilson, Chairman, President and CEO of McCormick.
