Good Evening, 10k ♪ Sorry to read about your various health concerns that have made you less active here on GB. I hope and pray the Doctors can accurately find and diagnose any health problems you may have. That is good you have a normal blood pressure reading.

Sorry I haven't been around here much lately. Life has been super busy for me with many happenings in my life, my family, and the ongoing job search for a career #2, since unfortunately I lost so many Music Students and income since the second half of 2013. I will keep you posted when I do land a new job, and/or more Music Students.

Take care!

Good Night!
