Pete has been awfully quiet of late (and for good reason)?
Does anyone know how the old fart is doing?

Closing the business got more complex than i thought.... i could not do it myself except in a supervisory capacity and then only for a few hours before my battery went flat. My sister, cousin, Andrew R and a few others assisted....thank you.
There's some big mental hurdles to overcome and adjustments made when you get bad health news so that's also pretty much a challenge...
The process also unraveled my life and there's a lot of stuff to fix & put into place. My family have been amazingly understanding and supportive.....funny when the chips are down how one learns about yourself, family & friends!  ;)

Fortunately you had a wakeup call Pete. The ball is in your hands to make the change. I have seen many people changing their lifestyle, attitude and approach to life, for the better. They are standing on both feet again. Best of luck with this process. I am sure you can do it.
