Nice to hear from you again Mark and nicer still you requested that I "friend" you.  (However, it does call into question your judgement....)  I believe I mentioned somewhere in your "What happens if Google & Walt Disney eat the world" post that I'd be honored to be your friend, and now you've given me the opportunity to do so.  (I'd bet Sharon HIll would never believe it and probably ask you "just what in the 'Sharon Hill' you are doing"?)  Take care and stay well!
