Thanks guys.  I was just wondering if it was common practice to pass all 
those variables in the SESSION object or if I was following a bad example 
because it was the first time that I had seen so many variables passed this 
way.  If this is the typical way of handling this in php then I don't have a 
problem with it, I just wanted to make sure that I wasn't getting off to a 
bad start and picking up bad habits while learning php.
