I think this is the person running my Internet connection

I've had about an hour of Internet time since yesterday afternoon. And I blame the man above.

I will post a weekend edition as the Internet connection permits. I hope AHNC's new executive suite has a better connection.

For the youngsters out there...

Peace and harmony.
