Happy New Year to you, too!

It's good to see you logging in again. It has been more than a year since you have been around here.

Yes Jacques, it's "been a minute"...as the youngins say nowadays. Got my password right first try, but had to figure out how to post a GIF again. Little bit rusty on CT system.

Nice to see some familiar names still here (such as yours :wink: )!

Hope you are doing well.
