For those of you who have written to me asking questions or making requests:
Please bear with me. I have not had time to reply to most of you who have written in with requests or questions. Both of my parents are very ill and I have spent most of the last month taking care of their medical situations. I will reply to each and every person who has written but it may still be a while before hearing from me. I will try to answer those who have time sensitive questions/requests first. I am so sorry for the delays and I ask for your understanding and patience.
Merry Christmas to all of you and may each and every one of you have a safe and wonderful holiday season. May the New Year bring only the best to you!
