I apologize to those who visit my site with some regularity. For the past two years my wife has been quite ill, and my attention has been elsewhere. After many operations, months in the hospital, and nearly 2 years to recover she is finally back and in better condition than she has been in years.
I expect to be making regular entries from now on; at least that is my plan, though it has been my experience over the years that "life is what happens to you while you are making plans."
Thanx for your patience and loyalty.
