Leaving for a while

Hi Everybody,
              I'm leaving for several weeks over the holiday season
(computers are OUT) to avoid clogging my mailbox with lotsa messages.
My email box remains online. If anybody wishes to send any messages,
they will be received at any time (barring server crashes). I will
give my mailbox a final check this Friday.
     In the meantime, thanks for all your tips, help and patience.
I've enjoyed the ride and hope to be back next year. Season's
Greetings, and may your sparks grow ever longer.
