I'm happy to say that I talked to Colin on the phone today! He's alive and well, just very busy. That's a high-class problem, but the kind of problem you run into when you're honest and you know your business.

(I should probably run out and buy a lottery ticket, too!)

Colin is very successful with his business, thanks to the Forums and the VAP and word of mouth.
He is a truly nice fellow, having met him, and one who shares his knowledge with the world. But he may suffer from the "Nicola Tesla" syndrome, of being great at what he does but not at the business part. Sounds like he needs organizational help with that, maybe a good personal assistant.It would only increase his business even more.

He mentioned that he was looking for an office manager - someone to deal with bothersome* people like me!



*He didn't actually say that I was bothersome - he's much too nice for that.

hope he gets one. He is too far to be of much service to us, other than when it comes to ordering axles.
