Thank you Pris. With my own current health problems I'm more aware than ever about my remaining number of breaths. :-)

Thank you so much. Summer seems a strange time for an illness doesn't it, and even death. After having lost both of my mothers within four days of each this Summer, it's all the more painful that a Summer cannot be illness free.

warmest regards,

Alan
