I am selecting a field in a database called description for keyword 
searching.  The field contains names of people, states, years, etc.  When 
someone searches for say "holmes north carolina" the query searches for 
exactly that, fields which have "holmes north carolina", and not fields 
that contaim holmes, north, and carolina.  So I run a str_replace to 
replace all spaces with *, which turns it into "holmes*north*carolina", 
but say that north carolina is before holmes in the field, it won't return 
those fields (it only returns fields in which holmes is infront of north 
carolina).  So how can I have it return all fields which contain all 
the words holmes, north, and carolina in any order, in that field?
