My apologies for the above post; just wanted to fix a few typos I missed the first time.
Bonnier's new home is in Florida? You'd be wise to buy copious amounts of hurricane insurance and keep your critical documents and records somewhere hurricanes cannot reach. Too bad Les Abend still has to commute from Florida to New York and back, for American Airlines.
No question the IFR ticket forever changes the way you fly. For me an unexpected side benefit of the instrument rating was the higher level of precisionI brought to my VFR flying. No more big deviations in altitude or heading, within 40-60 feet up or down in smooth air and don't let the heading get outisde the bug.
Don't let all those bells an whistles on modern aircraft tempt you to go somewhere you can't extricate yourself from. There's a fine line between confidence and arrogance; make sure you stay on the safe side of that line.
