    Hi Jeff,
    Good video, very informative. Was that your new staff member at the end of the video?

      In the future, yes! Maggie is very smart and very determined. She already asked for our computer passwords so she’ll be ready to take over when it’s her time! I am NOT joking! She’s 7, so it will be a while before she puts us out to pasture!

  4. Michael Regan

    Yes, a difficult time for all… especially DUV. Greatly appreciate the extra time and effort you guys are putting in to make our job lighter and less anxious.
