Hi, Tim. Welcome to the group. We're glad to have you, even if
you won't be making it to many of our meetings.  :-)  Sounds like
you have quite a bit of experience. I expect you'd be able to
teach most of us a thing or two. May I ask how you heard about
us? I'm going to take a wild guess that we're not exactly famous
out there in Florida.
