    I hope to see you again here soon. :-)

    Clear skies to you.
    Hi Mark!
    Well, yeah. Things are going back to normal, I guess. I have my job, driver license so I can make my own choices plus I am learning every day from my clients what is to live here in California. I am working on getting my nursing certification so things are getting better.
