The explanation for my failure to maintain this blog recently is a Medical one. In early April I was scheduled for a artificial valve replacement which was to have kept me in the hospital a couple of days and return to normal life. However, there was a complication Requiring my return for an open-heart procedure which was totally unexpected. Since that time I have been through recovery and in a coronary rehabilitation process. The good news is that I have made a good recovery and I am scheduled to return home this week. I will be able to maintain this site after that time. I apologize to those of you who have subscribe. Please be patient.
