Not arguing, just a simple discussion.

Merry Christmas and a Happy and healthy New year to you, too!

In my way of thinking, simplicity often leads to success. We always "think" there is a better way. That's not bad in itself because it leads to creative solutions, however overdoing and over-embellishment often leads to poor design and quality.


Mark,

Guide Flies...:) My friends, who are guides, would agree with you completely! Except when they are bumming flies off of me...:)

Matt, Mark...Merry Christmas my friends!
