I PnP'd my sample bottle of R Merlo PN the day after I got it and it was fine, although it only made a one-way trip from CA to OH, not back again.

Are you going to get a chance to visit La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona?

Thanks everyone for the well-wishes. I'm open to any and all opportunities. Self pity party and wallowing for now but starting tomorrow, I will have to get my butt in gear and start searching for a job. And packing to move to a new place by the end of July.

Don't worry about it. Eventually, people will stop posting on the old pub, and it will fade toward the bottom.
