Would have been glad if my husband had stayed employed at the county past his 9 years. He helped put them online. His startup business is fine in Nevada apparently creating a lot of jobs. Don - how many stock holders in a collective consciousness does it take to change everything? - 1 to tell the truth and 1 to refute it. The rest will make up their own mind and try to live with their choices.
