    Dear Tom, it is great to hear from you and I can not thank enough for the kind words of support. I know there are a lot of horror stories about promotion to chief officer level, but this is not one of them - I am loving my move and promotion. I work for a great group of men and women. The changes are coming fast and they are keeping up unlike anywhere. It sure has proven that no matter how old or how long I do this job, the learning just will never stop. Got to love it Tom. I hope all is well in Framingham! Please be safe with all this "beautiful" weather happening now. It is good for work though!! Rick
