Of course it has to be a buttler... you wouldn’t have a pilot manually salting the clouds for rain.

Awesome. Ivan the industrial machine. Happy for you getting work, hope it continues, until you need people…. It’s when you get people most of the problems show up. Before that you are too busy to notice.

Hoping for a fruitful 2021 for you.

Well done.

Way to shake and bake!
