Congratulations! One thought... Now that my son has a son, I appreciate all the more how fast time goes by. If there's one thing in life I could do over again, it would be to spend more time with my children when they were children and teenagers and less time working.

Congratulations to Richard! It's a Vida Nova, I think that also means "new life" in Spanish :)

There are no words to describe the joy I am feeling in my soul. I don't remember ever seeing a child with so much optimism like what radiates from my son - he smiles all the time (except when feeding). I love him so much...

Richard,

Congratulation!! You must be incredibly excited over this!

Capital punishment would be more effective as a preventive measure if it were administered prior to the crime.

Don't want to trespass on this nice post Richard but; can us fans expect a new strong program to come out soon under a different name.

Best,
Gerold.
