Outstanding capture Bill. I finally got a day off so trying to catch up with my friends. First congratulation on the Golden Anniv. I have 8 to go to get there. You look very heathy in your SP capture so manny more should ensue. Sorry about all the attacks on your homeland and by doctors no less. Gives my profession a bad image but those were no caregivers as the world now knows but religeous bigots. Many more to you and your lovely wife, Bill. Today we are celebrating our Independance from the Mother Country but we are still great friends. #4473236
