    George, I love your jokes. Thanks for adding a little humor to your broadcasts. I enjoyed seeing the show today. Don't get to watch them live. It was great seeing around your shop. Maybe you could do a tour around your shop as one of the videos you send out. I would love to see how you have it all set up and learn why you chose the machines you did.
