Re: questuon

I make no claims about being a tough old rooster.
I have continued working from Day 1 and have been through Stage 3A Colon Cancer in 2007, Stage 3A NSCLC in 2017, recurrent Stage 4 NSCLC in 2019.
People sometimes need reminding that it isn;t quite business as usual but I'm not ready to take to the couch yet.
