Thanks for the input.

When starting the poll, I figured there would be lots of no votes. Had a target number of yes votes in mind. If the yes's reach that number, then great.
I could try coordinating the contest for a couple months to determine interest level.

The RJ is excellent. Love the crinoid cabs, too.

Nice rework. A lot of valuable knowledge for the future, too.

rockpickerforever: As a kid, I didn't use to like liver, yuk. Now I really like it, especially calves liver. But cooking it and the bacon and onions kind of makes a mess. Old folks need their iron, liver better than Geritol! And I gotta keep my HTC up to be a blood donor. May 18, 2019 21:36:28 GMT -5
