$ sudo pmset -g log

  1. Ice, great response and thank you once again for being such a sharp writer and friendly supporter of my work. God bless you and I hope you’re gearing up for a pleasant summer! I know I am looking forward to some camping and the backyard bbqs. I even have a Baptist retreat scheduled which I am very excited about. How about you?
