    I've been contracted by AVI (Automotive Video Inc,) To do a series of videos, which will involve several trips to Florida. The last couple of weeks I've been writing the scripts and doing the editing. So, there maybe a few rerun articles for awhile. This is has been keeping me busy away from my usual writing schedule.
