    Phil I take it that you have never been to the Igo post office? The door opens on the side. If you had, you would have seen the half finished parking lot because the building inspector stopped it. Said that it needed a permit. A government agency paying another. Which needs the money more? With all this belt tightening Igo might always have a parking lot no one can use.

    HAHA…funny one Phil, it's good to hear from ya from the city by the Golden Gate. Has Tony Bennet located his heart yet?
