Dennis:

That is pretty hard to believe.  In our northern California county of El Dorado, there is so much work that some engineers have phone messages telling people not to call them for six weeks or so.  Must be that there is part of California that can be considered "third world".

I also skip a lot of your long (but probably pretty good) posts.
