        no need to connect with me 🙂 i was just trying to make sense of this “list” (?) that popped up in my linked feed this morning (spam?). My sincere best wishes to you too!

        ps. 151 maybe a bit too optimistic, i agree 😉

  • Thanks Duke. Always great to meet more movers and shakers.

  • Always a great resource, and ever grateful!
