I am getting comments, messages and emails from folk who are concerned about my not having posted lately and I want to that you all for each and every one of these.

I promise you that there is no need for concern.  I am fine but just not well enough to be able to post anything coherent or note worthy enough for posting and additionally it has been so very cold over here and far too cold for me to be able to spend much time in my study which is another reason for my not having posted of late.

I will be back to posting when my health (and the weather) improves. But thank you once again for all your kind comments and notes and messages of concern.
