My wife is (dental assistant specialist) I'm a internet developer and work from the house so I get to reap all the benefits of living in Europe and still grow a beard.

We are heading to Texas in 6 months though, been a helluva stint over here.

Very cool. I've been in the Air Force for 10 years. I've got the cush assignment right now - working on a PhD in Computer Science to go back and teach at the Air Force Academy again. I'll have to do a real job between here and teaching, and I really hope to get over to Germany for an assignment. Where in TX are you headed? SA?

I misread - sorry. I thought you calculated your boil-off by 4.5-3.5=1 gal. I see now that I need another cup or three of coffee.

Well, it's not the armpit of TX, but you can smell it from there.

Cheers.
