We are slowly getting things back together again on this diary, after an absence of a few weeks (automated, scheduled posts did all the work). We want to thank all of you who responded and left a comment during this time. We are slowly but surely responding to some of your comments and questions. If you happened to be a first time commenter, we are in the process of approving your contributions now. So, if you did not see your comment show up on the blog right away, (now you know why) it will be up within a few days time.
