[ale] For the sanity of my marriage

I have a few boxes in the garage and most of the loose stuff upstairs in 
the bonus room. When we first moved in this house i had planned to put 
together a mad man's electronics lab, but then my son and his family had 
to move in and all plans went to hell including all my savings so I no 
longer really have much need for most of it. So it's open pickings for 
anyone interested.

Raj I would also be interested in donating if you could give me more 
info on this group.
