Hello Bill,
Thank you for your invite. I pop in to Tradconnect more and more often as a site with great connection to the music I love. Just got home from a soccer match (first round of state playoffs) that my daughter was playing in. Her team won 3-0. On to round two on Monday. Played whistle most of the early part of today. Take care for now.
