Greetings all!

Can’t claim to have snagged and published every update

that also have some internet experience, and…etcetera,
STEP UP!, and take this over, because…I really am done.
Thanks! Adam S

Thought(s) for the day:

“As I continue to struggle, I think of the words of an old-timer in my area. No matter what the topic, he always finishes sharing
with the words, ‘and I haven’t had a drink today.’ Remembering his words never fails to bring to my mind
the words ‘experience, strength, and hope.'”
So far, that’s about it for now. More to come!
