Thanks for posting this :) Thanks for all the hard work that you do for us, Fog.  Thanks also for taking the time to explain it all out for the family.  It was really interesting to hear all the information in the video, especially the legend of the Giascioch as well as the history of the Gaiscioch family.  I have such love and respect for the family, you all are just awesome.   Thank you all for allowing me to be a part of the family.
