Hi Lev,

  long time my friend.  How have you been?  glad that you have moved to a house that you feel is better for you.  I wish you comfort as you settle.  I have not been in here for a while due to time and sometimes internet connection issues.  The boys and I are doing good.  I hope to catch up with you online.  Warm hugs.
