Dave, this is good news. I just posted my good PSA news and I can identify with your difficulty in "showing off" good numbers when so many here can't.
I do hope you'll hang around often and now that you're a confirmed 'old fart' who has faced the devil and beaten him back, continue to share your story and hope for the many new people who arrive here weekly in distress facing the unknown.
As for Bronson, he is a man I'm honored to call friend.
