  1. Hal, thank you for all the time you put into this column. All those dates, times, details and links are a nightmare to post. We appreciate you!

      Thanks, Doni. Really, though, it’s just a pain in the butt. I can’t claim that I go through a nightmare getting the column together. When something is just a pain in the butt, it takes but two beers to get past it. When something is a nightmare, it takes eight. I’ve tested this.

    You made me laugh Hal Johnson.  You make a hard job look easy…   thank you.
