Ramon has just finished his stay at my place with my wife and I where he's been since Monday night. We had a great time with him but we realised how exhausted he was so we just let him hang around the house and catch up on some sleep.... he seems to have a bit more energy now. He has been a little stressed in the past week because he hasn't been able to get full access to his web-site. He has a laptop coming any time now but he had a few problems getting it. Anyway, he'll be back in full swing once it gets here and I'm sure his reports will be back to normal. Thanks for visiting Ramon, and we'll see you again when we stay at your house one day.
see Ya....

Thanks Darren!
