That did it!  Thanks for the Help!
What value do the numbers carry in the ranking?  I arbitrarily choose 
the number 5 cause it's an easy number :)

I am a bit nervous about the dismax query system as I have quite a bit 
of other content that could skew the results.
Whats the difference between the dismax query handler and listing all of 
the fields in my search and separating them with an OR?
