  2. Yes, much easier. I think even those addicted to “Dancing With The Stars”, should be able to get many of these. Still, I keep thinking you should add in questions related to your cruiser population and cruising. Questions like: What is top speed of a Rascal chair? What are some off-label uses for Bupropion and for Gabapentin? What is the primary gas produced by ingesting cabbage or potatoes? How invented bifocal glasses? 😉

    Have full. BTW, I love following your updates. Keep’em coming.
