    • Thanks Keith, with little sleep, I’ll add that. Terrific addition. Helped me get out of a nightmare which left me with only an hour of sleep last night. So, what’s left but to do or write something positive or about something happy. And never knowing what and how things come out. My apologies for a lot of the site not working properly over the past few months. We’re on it. Hope to get that good old 1/2 million hits a day back, spreading the positivity. Yours. J.
