Now it's a great question given the challenging times that the country is going through with cove in nineteen. our business has always been very strong Throughout i wouldn't say it's recession proof but it certainly recession resistant. Because when times are very good in the economy people tend to spend money on their homes. Their homes appreciate in value. They feel more comfortable making improvements and investments in their homes and when times are not as good. They tend to stay in their home. They don't sell and as much they stay in their job et cetera. So we tend to do very well and both types of an economy.
