I'm not going that far yet....painting a couple of window frames doesn't change my mind completely, nore does it prove that they have been doing continuose work on it (or the entire collection for that matter)...and I still have some huge reservations with them taking on a project like Frankinengine with all of these other needs in the pipeline. That being said....

At least they are slowly starting to prove me wrong, which is much better than continuing to let the collection rot. I am more than willing to give credit where credit is due....case in point. Nothing would make my crow taste better than for them to prove me wrong and actually get these publicized projects done.On that we can agree.

Vitamin G tastes sweet on the first sip, but has a bitter aftertaste. My only point is that there's plenty enough bitter occuring naturally in Vitamin G without adding to it.
