Thanks for your words of appreciation, Olga. I hereby reciprocate! However,
I think it's a pity about the schemozzle with you and Lee this morning (my
time) because I think you are both good and reasonable people. Pat Innis
seemed likewise, despite the misunderstanding with Lee (which Lee must have
found frustrating), so I hope he delurks some more.

My last post to the list, in answer to one from Lee, bounced, so I might
just leave it there for tonite. There's lots to say, but the pre-post-human
body and brain are running out of energy (time to read for a while then go
to bed).

"Ascend!" I say sleepily. :-)
