David, Yes we visited as true brothers. Our conversations had little to do about our PC but more about the value of our new friends on HW and you and Sonny were high on that list.

Before long we will have that visit with you.

Sounds like a good way to spend a rainy afternoon Jeff. And it is good to put a face to a name. Hope that all of you enjoy the coming of a New Year and the possibility of more friendships.

That's great to hear. The quality of people I have met through HW have been better for me, than I am use to in my day to day life. The brotherhood is real to me.

Michael and Davide, I have been very fortunate to have made friends on HW. All of these freinds have been via internet and phone. This was my first time getting to visit one of my brothers face to face. All I can say is I think Neil and Darleen are going to be life long friends if they will have us. Neil you flatter us with you comments. We are just a humble couple that have learned the true value of life and freindship. And I thank you for you friendship.

Guys just as an update. I spoke with Neil this afternoon and told him the next visit will be at my house where I will try to impress Darleen with my coonking.

Happy New Year guys. I would say mine is on to a great start.

neil, thank, got the pics, gee, you two are homely as hell, but you can't help that part. you aren't a pretty boy like me, but it comes with a price. so glad you two met in person, perhaps i will be next.
