Thanks  Jerry, to give you  an idea I personally lost power  long  enough to reboot my  PC,  along the shore (I live 1/2-1 mile off  Long Island  sound in  My community's  seevral  beach  areas  we  Had  one side  on the Harbor (2 miles east of me) where   Waves were  Breaking  over  decks  and  1st  floors  (mind you  most   are closer to the 2nd  floor and  wading through  chest  deep  water.. BUT  we had  Towns  without power  for 15 -20 days  up in NE  Ny  State and  Vermont were  hard hit  Much  rain  trees  down bridges out  and that caused  ultimately MORE  damage then  MOST  of  us  saw  down  here..... I will say,  They were  discussing  a potential storm surge of  20+  feet Had  everything aligned,  and IF it had it would  have  been  15 times worse... lol  folks 2 streets over   had no power  for  8  days.. it was a Crap shoot

Hey Jim, hope you and the brothers on the East Coast are ok after the bit of bad weather you had last week.  Take Care and be safe!

This is a shot my son took yesterday at Kimberly's Good Neighbor Day. I was asked to play during the intermission of the bands.

You'll get it Jay. Glad to hear you say great.

After 1 lesson only I can say great. Having a little difficulty transferring those black dotes into finger position. And thanks for the birthday wishes.
