    Welcome. We expect every new member to post their resumes, especially from those parts of the world where they get their summers and winters mixed up.

    thanks for the welcoming notes, folks. I hope to drop in here occasionally in these middle years(65-75) of late adulthood(60-80) and old age(80++), if I last that long.-Ron
