First and foremost, I'm blessed and give thanks for these past four decades with my smart, tough, and beautiful Trophy Wife. I'm also thankful for my four sons, each is blessed with good health, wonderful families and rewarding careers far more meaningful than mine. I am also blessed with unreasonably good health and wealth for a man of my age and profligate ways. Also, pertaining to the central focus of this site, I am thankful that this, our worst nightmare of the 21st century, is almost over - not that its effects won't endure long after these last eight years. If it hadn't been for my GR8 blogging brothers and sisters, who have had my back on the Net, I wouldn't have made it this far. I don't need to mention names, because you all know who you are.
