The various topics interjected into this thread - Yeah I have enjoyed

This NTLK Community - It's been a beautiful place to connected to everyone

I'm honored to see my name mentioned here - more humbled by the kind words
thank anything else.
No longer using Newton daily, but still have a few remaining units.
I'm still trying to clear up any loose items with a few other users, but

affected zones in your thoughts, prayers and hope they are protected from
harms way. I'm not is a high danger zone but still as we learned from Irene
even outside of the danger zone especially those in upstate NYS they were
Thank you listers for thinking about myself, those of us in NYS and in the
path of Sandy.
Yes Grant, I'm still registered to the list because I still miss Newton and
enjoy the banter which brings warm memories and a sense of community
special to me...
boy the wind a roaring by now outside my windows.... peace and be safe
