It is truly amazing what you can find on the internet. An old friend (there is much more that I will not retell here, but a few close friends will know the entire history) is living his dream and doing amazing things. Despite what some may think, I was incredibly happy for him when I read this staff detail sheet. ... so much so I posted it on my blog

Bravo, Bravo!
