Am moving to North Carolina sometime early next year.Instead of being a Masshole I'll have to learn to be a redneck.Just retired last year after a career in Radiology,retiring as a Cat Scan tech.Forty years walking on those hard hospital floors resulted in two knee replacements. Also beat bladder cancer although I do have a bag til I croak but I'm happy to be alive. Ok,don't want to bore oyu right away. Take care-Raz
