Glad to hear from a “Newfy”, I was in St. John’s from 1971 to 1977 working on the Health Science Complex, was living on 48 Gambier street and my best restaurant was “The “Starboard Quarters”, don’t know if its still there now. I wish you good luck on your new builds.

Thank God you brought up the lying in bed thinking about a model. Thought I was the only one who did that. By the time morning rolls around I have figured out any problems I may have had with the model the day before. Ditto: family thinks I’ve lost it.
my wife listens to me ramble on but I think she also uses hard to detect ear plugs.
