I received a message telling me that I have not participated recently and it suggests I ask a question or make a comment. So here goes
I had some really bad luck and almost closed my business. I decided to give it another go and I am working clever and working hard...low and behold it is paying off. I am actually doing rather well at the moment and things are lining up nicely. My work is taking me out of town allot and away from my family so its tough at times.
I am glad I had this run of bad luck because it forced me to find solutions and opportunities that were not visible before
Hell I might still become a "Larney" like you fine gentlemen
