Apologies from Robert-J

I must apologise for my absence form the Venice Forum since Tuesday, 22 March. Lots of reasons -

(a) ill-health

(b) computer malfunction which could not be rectified because of ill health

(c) yesterday was my 81 st birthday and rather taken up with celebrations.

So all now overcome and hope to be active until the next alarm.

You of all people must never apologize. You have been the most stalwart, helpful and productive among the fellow travelers, and there are thousands out here who love you and applaud you for it.

I hope you are having a lovely birthday week/month/year and pursuing everything that may be a blessing to you.

Are you still travelling? I am approaching your age, maybe there needs to be an octogen forum on T/A
