@trombone_chick if you’re sick/contagious you probably shouldn’t be on the bus. Otherwise, I would be happy to have you along.
just figured out it was #Smartmusic that was slowing my laptop processing time way down. Uninstalled and we’re flying again!
@pianotyke of course you are human. I have no idea what you are referring to!
