    I appreciate my return guests and I used to be astonished when people would take my tour again. I have retired, replaced and considered alternate valid perspectives of the content of this tour so that it does not become a painful repetitive exercise for me. I need to be highly engaged before I can engage my guests. In gratitude, Kenneth
