  1. Hello good sir. A Happy New Year greeting is still safe according to my calendar, so I shout it out.
    I was just sending along a note to Paul Oyer and while writing, a mental reminder popped to view. It was a reminder to drop you a line and say, bully for you! Great to see you happy and doing well. I’m not surprised, but glad indeed to see all is well.
    Have a memorable ’15 mon ami.
    All the best,
