your words tend to stab like a rapier and slash like a katana, two swords both elegant but deadly....
Flattery will get you everywhere - elegant but deadly, not something I hear every day. But let's not forget that there's been much shenanigans over the years and I've gone to great pains to smooth it over but after what happened at the beginning of the year I'm done with that so if someone asks I'll just tell them and there's nothing new or previously unsaid in the above anyway.

Also, don't forget that there was a concerted effort to blacken the name of the BBP so that gives us the right to defend with the truth and there's no shame in a few up-front cuts with a honed blade when compared to the dull hatchet swung at our backs.

Regarding negotiations - seeing as I took the lead on pretty much every negotiation in fifteen years that brought us from a dripping pile of scrap to an operable machine, being able to sit back and hand that one off to someone else is a fabulous luxury. Jordan is a good hand and a total professional so he's more than capable and very welcome to take over.

It's much worse than the corporate world. I spent plenty of years there but even if there was a meeting to arrange a meeting it was hammered out and we cracked on. The whole committee thing seems to have only one speed and no leaders.

A little update on the proposed online meeting with the Trustees.
They have replied but with a concern but this has been addressed in my reply to them this evening and should remove that stumbling block. Onward!

Good work Admiral Aspin... Just let us know when we can pick up the tools and we'll be back on track.
