I wanted to let everyone know I had an email from Screaming Eagle and he is taking a break from the forum for a bit. His pain level is over the top and going to work every day is pretty much about all he can handle right now. When he is feeling better and the pain level is down he will be back. I told him we would be waiting.

Feel better, Michael.  You know you are missed and do a great service to this forum.  But we all need to take a break now and then.  I sure know that, personally.
God's blessings over you.
Believe in yourself. Be kind to fellow humans and animals. Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.

And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help. I will be there.

You will be greatly missed here I think, but we'd much rather you take the time away that you need to get things sorted out and under control best you can.

Take care my friend
