OK that's not entirely it, I have been slacking off playing Skyrim. I have played the other Elder Scroll games but never lasted long as I did not like some of the game mechanics, mainly in the spell caster arena. Skyrim looks to have improved on them a great deal.
I also have been working a secondary job on contract and hope to finish it up within 2-4 weeks and then I can get back to Red Ash business.
Have a great New Year!
