Whoa! Sitting over here at WaDuke thinking about the excellent conversation we had together this morning. Such a delight to be with y’all, with Laurinda, and with Professor Dyreng. Huge thanks to BLMBAO for this opportunity.
Thanks to all the folks who wanted to chat afterward. I am honored that our time together was helpful to you.

Wishing you every success with life and money,
