I have been gone awhile, almost 4 years partly due to Facebook, health, time management working on technology, and logging in issues. A lot has changed here I see  and with myself and yet my kidney and pancreas transplant keeps going ( nothing to do with Energizer Bunny though!).

Hello Chris and welcome back !!!
You are right; lots of things have changed... I am meanwhile on dialysis and since January 2016 I have been put on the kidney-transplant-waiting-list... and that was very lucky because I had some cancer-issues in the past... and my husband wanted to donate one of his kidneys to me and during the work-up he was diagnosed with cancer ... and fortunately it was still in the first stages and after two operations (just to make sure) and a short course of chemotherapy he is finally alright again ...
I do hope you had no health-matters to worry about and I am very glad to “see” you again... :grouphug;
P.S. Have you heard of the Motor-Car Museum in Beaulieu? They have a wonderful classical racing car collection and when we visited I saw for the first time the 1927 Napier-Campbell Blue Bird racing car and some wonderful classical Rolls-Royces and the collection of beautiful Jaguars... of course, such cars are not readily available for ordinary mortals, but one can still keep on dreaming .....
