Thank you, markievicz. This is a bit of a departure for me, but I'm grasping at straws here.

Thank you, Fazc. I'm hoping for some sort of improvement. It would be nice to see the advertized 15 to 20, but right now, I'd just be happy to leave 190 in the dust.

Thank you, Hazzard. I hope to have some fun. Its all part of that journey, you know. Picking up heavy stuff, and finding out what works and what doesn't. What sort of improvement did you experience?

Thank you, Mike. In fact, 275 IS my goal. You gotta think big. Bigger than your obstacles. If my goal was 190, then 190 is what I would get. Here's to my next plateau being 275.

Assuming that you meant the latter, I thank you, and hope I don't dissapoint.
