I am taking a break from Blogging until early in 2016. Unless something earth-shattering happens which requires urgent comment, there will be no Blog post until early in 2016.
I would like to thank all the loyal readers of this Blog for the helpful feedback I receive from time to time in emails and when I encounter readers at public events. I hope you all have a safe and enjoyable holiday.
See you in 2016.BACK TO TOP
