Bob, Nobody is taking attendance.  At least I don't think so.  We lived in a 100 year old house that was an endless project.  The only way through is to work on it when your ready and motivated and step back when you are not or have other stuff...

Good to hear from you again Bob.  Enjoyed meeting you at the Drivers School.   I found the last year before retiring to be the most difficult by far.  But external projects helped the time pass.  You are an expert in the health industry but you...
