It's great to be back in touch with you Pedro, though of course email  
is not the same!  Unfortunately, I don't know for how long I might be  
able to stay participating on the list, because working at the  
computer tends to bring back symptoms from the stroke I suffered a  
year ago (on top of health issues I'd been dealing with since spring  
2003).  In fact, I "shouldn't" be doing this.  But it's obvious that  
the TS is right now at what may be the most important crossroads in  
its history, & we all have to do what we can.  Please give my  
affectionate regards to the many friends Down Under!
