I'm off traveling in a couple weeks in search of somewhere new to call home, loading up the camper and hitting the trail, so I won't be on line for some time.

I want to thank all of you for making me welcome the last few months and 'splainin' things.

If you have any more questions before I disappear, get 'em in quick!

Nope, no questions. Hope your trip is fruitful and you really find a good place. I hope to do the same someday soon. BTW, I've been working with one of your fellow countryman, the way he describes London, I don't blame you for not looking there. Guess I watch too many Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes movies as a kid, NOT the way I pictured it. Good luck and look forward to having you back.

Best Wishes, Paul.
Get back on as soon as you get "grounded".

Thanks for the good wishes.

Yes, I'm afraid London has been changing for the worse. It still has the history, some nice parks, and so on, but every time I go back there it seems to be even more congested. It's now noisy, dirty, horrendously expensive, and in many areas has a very high crime rate. The same goes for most of the big cities and towns.

Out here in the boondocks it's much better, but still getting expensive.

I'm planning on heading over to France to find somewhere to live. Homes there are much better value, and life in the French countryside is slower paced and more relaxed.

Paul:
God be with you in your journey. I will miss the fascinating descriptions of the electrical craft which you have shared with us. Will be looking forward to hearing from you SOON.

I know this will sound somewhat simplistic. I once heard this parting phrase on, of all things, a "Star Trek" TV show, but I like it, nonetheless..."Live Long and Prosper".
This is my wish for you.

Mike (mamills)
