Every time I try to get into zoom, my cam blocks it, and I cannot find why, maybe I am not compatible :laugh:
So next week my IT firm will try to find out why.
Sorry, I know I promised but my hands are for the moment bound. I have also problems with Teams.

That's a drag, Harry. Sorry!

I need to know if you really look like Tchaikovsky Harry!

Believe me Jeffrey I do, though I must admit my beard is trice as long as his,
There comes a point in your life when you realize: Who matters, Who never did, Who won't anymore, And who always will. So, don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

My only excuse is I didn't feel like talking to anyone at that moment. I was still enjoying the morning coffee. :)

John, most of the time I never feel like talking to anybody.

This is certainly understandable, but I do love talking with people especially if the conversation is an engaging one, but in the morning time, it takes me awhile to warm up. :)

It usually takes me at least until 1pm to warm up. Which is probably why I usually go to sleep at 1am or even later. Making early morning appointments for me is usually dicey.

I can imagine. I'm a night owl as well. We both go to sleep at similar times. Yeah, I'm definitely not an 8AM to 5PM kind of employee.

Well, how did it go, otherwise, Karl? Did you have many people show up?
