Thanks Kate.

I would say I could take the day off, but that has been the norm since the ‘pause’.

Happy Birthday!

We’ll stick with this and enjoy the community and news we have
until sooner or later, however long it takes, it makes sense for the teams to reassemble.

Geez, it’s hard to believe you’re 39 already, Paul. Time flies as they say. Anyway, happy b-day.

But I hope you haven’t gone the way of that other Emperor. You know, the one who wore no clothes.  big surprise
