    Yes have been keeping active not as much in the Mystic testing as before but still supporting new users and folks just wanting a pathway back into BBSing. Quite a few move on to other software once they have their dipped their toes
    in the pond and that's good too... plenty to play with.

    I'm clad you're keeping current, hopefully it will rub off? :)

    Yes spring now, blossom is out on the cheery tree and tulip bulbs and
    daffodils are coming up now. Temps are still cool but I am starting to see
    the light at the end of the cool tunnel now.

    Columbia Maryland is northeast of Washington DC and slightly south and
    west of Baltimore MD... Wake Forest North Carolina is north and a little
    east of Raleigh NC... The trip went well, it was the annual Cooking
    Echo Picnic, this year hosted in Wake Forest... Lots of cooking and
    eating and talking... all very good as usual... :)

    My own car was being a little unreliable, so to be on the safe side, I
    hired a vehicle from Hertz... it turned out to be a 2019 cherry red
    Dodge Grand Caravan... got me there and back safely... :)

    That would have been the Cooking picnic. I wanted to go but Don's not been well so travel was out.


    BTW, welcome Glenn Rossi,1:275/301. He should be along to test here before I turn on the flood.
