Thank you to everyone for the wonderful birthday wishes, and the kind welcome backs. I've been somewhat away from the scene for a short bit, as I tend to do from time to time. Life sometimes demands our energies and attentions elsewhere. But it really makes me feel so great, and gives me a feeling of home, to be back amongst old friends and also new acquaintances. Thank you all.
