JUST A QUICK HELLO, CERTAIN MANY WILL BOTH WELCOME YOU ON BOARD AND ASSIST WHERE POS.

Hope that you may find some old friends of your dad and some new friends yourself. All could be a bit slow as of the time of year, but normally could come at once or take an age, stay in touch for every possible help.

HAPPY NEW YEAR.
