We have SEMS and I've very rarely had a problem with it, but then they only use a fifth of it's potential. It would be nice to go on line and pick up jobs, but they don't do that here. I was...

Now I feel a bit foolish

But for years I wanted to pronoun Sean as "seen", not Shawn. Took a Sean in my class back in the old days to set me straight. I still have problems pronouncing today's names correctly. What...
