    Yes, incredible with the journal now at 555 pages. I remember over ten years ago when I first came to the site and lurked around before becoming active. Been a great run to say to least!!

    Most recently you will see I needed extra time and took it...ten days off from one week to the next but who's counting. Had mixed feelings about doing it, found it completely necessary and timely.
