      Hello Dan, Squirrel Friend,
      It seems a while since we spoke, but let me say with Manfred Kyber that it
      only seems and that 'all distance is near when rightly understood'. And I
      have followed your posts and checked out your recommended websites on AT
      forum, so we stay close!
      Love, Jan
