Congratulations! I know how hard it is to start up this service - I
have been doing it (mostly by myself, some help from locals) for the
last year and some.

Yep - lay out the books and they will come! :-)

As I knew Sir Galen when he was Viscount Galen (no Sir), could you

'Runaway train feel'! I like that - sounds like the third day of
