Moving right along!  Big SmileYes  Is it just me, or does anybody else feel like listening to some ZZ Top after watching that video?  Wink

I see what you mean!  You probably don't need to have a beard to work there but I'm sure it doesn't hurt.

The other impression I get?  There must be some good places to eat around Cleveland!
