: : : approx. $50,000 in professional services,

: : : to stay on his ranch, and then worked me

: : Poor Paul! "strange, yes?" YES! Very strange!
: : All the sob stories make perfect sense to me now.

Paul, why not just let sleeping distractors lie, or lying distractors sleep.
Sure youre story was a little hard to take, and many of us don't understand the heart that is bigger than the business sense.
As you once advised us, "Illegitimus non carborundum."
Sincerely hope all works out. We've really enjoyed your forum, and only regret that our financial situation makes it too easy to understand yours. How wonderful it would be if we could contribute more than an occassional comment.
