  1. Guido,
    How do you maintain all these blogs?
    I see many have the word 'completed' after them.
    I see you as a person that doesn't add that word lightly.
    If that word is ever written against any of your personal blogs then you will indeed have driven through the clouds, wiped the rain from your window and seen over the hill.

    Best wishes to you on your journey.

  2. I like the if & when...
