George, I guess I'm still here. I thought I had unsubscribed, but maybe I got sidetracked. There's been so much going on in my life I don't always check to see what lists I'm on anymore. What kinds of things do you wish to discuss? Eternal progression? Exaltation? What will happen to each one of us? I'm not sure I know the answer to the last question as my entire life hasn't come up for review yet. I know I'll have some regrets about the way I've handled my last working situation and I'm afraid I'm going to be in hot water over that one, since I can't right every wrong I committed in that situation. That's my one big regret and I honestly worry I'm going to lose out on that one.
