I want to be able to do away with the first line of the code, and create a 
select statement that would generate the three rows first, followed by the 
rows from the table I'm using. I want to be able to do the same job without 
having to pre-load the array.

In other words, what's the best way to inject pre-defined rows into a select 
statement.
