I hear they are doing the workshop so you stop pulling back muscles Bernie. You took the comment "heavy lifting" too far and it clearly has to stop. The internet is simply dangerous to your safety.

Please consider attending the workshop.

LVDem, I love the comments, bad and good. I am so impressed by the diversity of opinions in our neighborhood, and those comments are what make blogs interesting.
