However, I want to take this occasion to point out something you may not realize: The blogger program that I use does not allow anyone to reply to a comment that you post to my entries. Furthermore, I have lost the e-mail addresses of some friends -- notably Tim Boychuk -- who have been entering welcome comments, so I cannot get back to you personally, as I would like to do. If you want a reply, please send me your email addresses, either in the body of your comments or as a private email to me. Since I am busy, it may take a while, but at least I'll have the capacity to reply.
Good wishes from Michigan, which has an amazing amount of wilderness territory in its northern areas.
