when it gets personal ("because of life members like you") that is when I get out of the discussion...and urge other people to as well. Go out enjoy the weekend, solder something do anything to blow down. I will. I will help...last pass for me. take the closing shot if you want it.
have a great Saturday...since coming home I try and I have embraced the line from the song "I am so glad I am standing here today".
take care make it a great day.
