Neil yesterday a girl at bank asked me why I don't use plastic again. I told her have you ever heard of identity theft using cash. She said Huh.

I had my identity stolen once but I was luck. I'm so boring they brought it back in 15 minutes.

yep, I've had it cut and a section replaced recently, there is I believe foam wrapped in foil-type wrapping, and I guess drywall for the ceiling - about 1 inch think board that gets soft and moldy from condensation. Then I believe a layer of plaster and some kind of paint over that. I will check later for any suggestions..

This might help a little, don't use to many of the fancy word, some us might get lost.
