I am enjoying it!  There are days I don't even pop in.  My first emotion has been and still is relief - it was very hectic the last couple of years with fingers in every pot.  I'm still recovering.  With time I may stop in more frequently.  For now I'll wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving in case I don't see you!

Thanks for the information about the address. I have no issue disregarding the address that the recruiter gave us, but I'm still concerned that the last 4 digits of the zipcode do not match the PLT#.
