    Just an old guy who is always ready to learn something new. I note I am only 1 of approximately 280 +/- individuals in the world who received this email.


    I doubt that 25% of those who received this will even read it . I doubt any one else will comment on it.


    Age: I was just learning to read on Pearl Harbor Day.
    Goal: I need another 10-20 years to reach my maximum potential.Wish me god luck.
