    How is everyone?

    Saw the yearly Speedguide Happy Birthday email this morning and thought I'd drop in to say hi. Hope everyone is doing well considering all the turmoil in the world at the moment.
    Looking for work............

    Happy Birthday Russell, all the best!

    I'm doing ok, thanks for asking. World is definitely different this year with that virus and the election polarization, hopefully it will get better soon.

    The Easto household is getting by as best as could be expected. There have been a couple of setbacks but fortunately, we've stayed healthy and are able to keep our heads above water. I told my wife as soon as this whole covid thing get's behind us I'm going to take her out to dinner every night for 2 weeks.

    Waaaaaay ahead of you. Tell your wife she is everything I had hoped for (right down to knowing how to brush a lamb).

    You know, she did come home the other night smelling a little musky. I asked her about it and she said she got a flat on the way home and that some guy stopped and helped her fix the flat.

    At least we seem to have several companies producing a viable vaccine. Now we just need wait and hope it comes sooner than later.

    My guess is ~3 months for availability, and then another few months for wider adoption. Hopefully it will ramp up and we'll get some resemblance of normalcy by the summer.
