frankly Max, I think you are being very mercenary - and I shall complain to the mods.
I know what is behind this superficial offer of coffee and the promise of in depth discussions about glass - all you want is free labour and a man to "clear the brambles and paint the chicken coop". Well, I don't come that cheap......................actually I come a lot cheaper
But seriously, my compliments on your very generous and friendly offer - although I don't see myself being your way for a month or two - but promise I will get in touch and will be honoured to share a coffee and chat with you (after someone else has cleared the brambles and finished the painting)
Did you find Kato by the way?
