Thanks - I pop in from time to time still now after the passing of my wife back in Jun of last year. I don't comment much unless I have something to contribute. Mostly support of Maia and Tom (DK) but now that Tom is gone there seems to be less of that sort of scientific exchange going on, and I don't have as much desire for researching things as I did when motivated by my wife's condition. I've little time to dig very deep now that I am responsible for everything in our household myself. Work, dogs (8), horse, pigeons (18), house yard etc. I broke 5 ribs back the beginning of November in a fall off my wife's horse, (Trying to keep him fit) which slowed me down for a while. It was the weekend of what would have been our 35th anniversary.
Take care and good luck.
