One of the things the transfer portal may be doing is preventing the development of long- term friendships that start and grow over the course of years. This edition is dedicated to my life-long friend (more like a brother) Dale Richey today, his birthday, in thanks that he never used the transfer portal on our friendship that started almost 60 years ago! Oh, and some MW news and notes in today’s links. Enjoy!!
