Yes, he did mention you when I talked to him. Great guy, BTW.

That's good. He needed more "visibility".

Well, it's still speculative. It sounds like the owner of Plum
Blossom "sounds" serious when he mentions the Friedrichshafen, so I
wouldn't get too much in a tizzy. I would wait until the "official"
word comes through, and then you can save your lunch money.:-) Plum
Blossom still has to put out - if it makes it - the Bristol.

> Ha!!! Please don't go looking for work, it will find you ;)

So true. But, as long as I "look" busy, all should be okay! ;-)
