                          While he is in Cali, I do regret he's not just a bit further south so as to be able to keep a better eye on you.... The Fig-Tator remains amok!

                                    LOL... well, only if that internship is at TorontoJoe's place in the great white north. I doubt that he is seeing the triple-digit temps that we are here, Alan.

                                        Thanks so very much, to all... It was very humbling to be asked to join some incredibly caring souls that have been serving in this role for us for a very long time.

                                        My little homestead here has been greatly benefitted from the combined expertise of our forum members, and I am just happy to be able to assist now in any way that I am able to.

                                        It was incredibly saddening to witness what became of F4F without moderators being present there. So, I was happy to see that Wills had employed them here, early on.
