I am going to just have one thread here at H.W. rather than chiming in on whatever I am feeling or thinking at the moment. That said, welcome to my thread. It is 5am here on the west coast and I wish I was sleeping but alas I have been awake for many hours. I woke up from a dream that I was lying in a hospice bed. Now thats a drag man. Try as I might, sleep would return no more. I did enjoy listening to my wife snoring away. Well I owe I owe so off to work I go. Todd
P.S. I will post my signature on this first post and any replys I make to ya'll on this thread I will turn that feature off. Have a great day.
