My friend Bill Bosworth from Science Alliance is retiring due to health concerns.  Over the last few weeks I have met with Bill and agreed to perform for most of his outstanding booked shows.   We have spoken in detail of both of our shows.    We compaired notes on most topics and I look forward to the shows and workshops.    Bill is a great man with whom I have always admired over the past 20 years.
