I was intrigued when I first read this and started researching.
Couldn't find much on Noerr - seems they've merged with
Cherry Hill Programs and they haven't worked out all the kinks

I think I just might have found what I want to do in
retirement. I can HO HO HO with the best of them and

next October I'll start the dyeing process. We'll see. . .
