Right back at you. It is nice to have these discussions and to learn from others and to take back and discuss at the kitchen table. Stay safe up there in NY and take care.

Hey, Paul, do you guys still use written log books or is it all computerized? Referring to daily logging of activities and alarms? We are possibly going to all computerized, not a popular decision so I am just curious.

Your message about the Rock training some how got cut off. It must have been operator error on my part. I remember you. That was a good time. I hope all is good with you and yours.
