No worry, Bill. As you know, we like to poke into the hot coals once in 
a while. Life (the Real one) has its own pace and priorities, I know all 
too well... Take care and don't get overwhelmed.

Also avoid batch 22-0004-b043 of your Dried Frog Pills, if you still 
have it. It has been contaminated with jitter powder from an unknown 
source. :-)
