I'm 60 today!

Hi all. Today I turned 60! Not an earth shattering event to anyone, but I've come to consider you folks here my friends and just wanted to share.

Been RE'd for 7 years now and can't imagine how I found the time to have that 60 hour a week j*b.

Thanks to all here for your insights and very helpful information along the way. I really enjoy this site and check in every day.

Peace!
Marko

I will help celebrate you birthday tonight, with a few cold ones. Always never need a reason to party on.
