Our good friend, and CBN site monitor  Dan Sleep , has  recently been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and is undergoing chemotherapy.

The chemo is making him  too sick to work in his shop. 
So,  he will be unable to complete any orders for his guitars or pickups , or spend time on CBN while he concentrates on getting well. He is now being treated as outpatient, so he is at home, and welcomes emails to his Humidor Guitars address .  dan@humidorguitars.com   (please refrain from using cbn mail .)  In talking with him , recently, we decided that I post  this announcement  for him , so he does not  have to deal with explaining it all repeatedly, or deal  with new order inquiries for his items at this time . 

His shop is closed indefinitely until he  feels better….. And we all hope that is soon .

Our thoughts are with you Dan .

Sending prayers...  Get well soon Iggy!

Here's hoping Dan will be feeling better very soon. I've talked with him several times at the York Festival and he was kind enough to come to one of my Farmers Market gigs in Alexandria,VA. A genuine good guy!

Best wishes Dan
