    WoW!! Great looking set up Paolo, VERY Nice indeed!!! What type of 'surgical' procedure do you have planned? That looks awesome, I'm sure it will run as good as it looks.

    Oh my paolo, I did not mean to pry into your personal affairs, when you mentioned a surgical intervent, I was thinking along the lines of you had something else to get done with your steam plant. I'm sorry. Hope it all goes well for you,


    Best Regards

    Paolo,

    An outstanding job! th_wav You should be very proud of your efforts!

    Congratulations!

    As to your upcoming procedure, if it is the non-invasive type, it should go quickly and have a very short recovery. I wish you the very best and eagerly wait for your return with lots of video of that fine plant running as she was meant to be........and much vino after! ;D

    God bless,

    Dave
