    As the past few weeks have gone by I have found myself at this computer more and more. I read your posts and say that I love to see all of you here. I don't always agree, but I enjoy reading them all.

    I'm about to have another major surgery (after 4 heart last year, and now they are going to take out my right kidney and gallbladder due to a tumor). I need to finish getting my band ready for festival prior to going in and having this done. I find that the pain is worst at night, and getting up to read your posts has been something that brings me a little peace. Thanks to you all for being a part of my life, even if in a small way.

    Maybe I have a strange way of looking at things, but when you become ill at a young age (47), you become a little more thankful for things. Reading your posts is my way of stopping to smell the roses as I walk along the path of life. Again, thanks to you all!

    Your students are very fortunate to have such a dedicated teacher! You certainly have my prayers as you go to this next operation.

    You are being very generous and kind with your comments.
    If you feel more comfortable "over here", I can understand how that may be so; I can relate to it, as well.
    I have learned a great deal in a short time. I am one who has knowledge "an inch deep, and a mile wide". Going through life trying to experience a bit of everything has its' drawbacks.
    I'm sure I say with this post, that we all ... are greatful for your contributions.
    God be with you, friend -- and a speedy recovery.

    P.S. -- Do they allow you to have a laptop in the hospital?

    Thanks for the kind words, but I was really just trying to thank y'all for being so great! I love this site simply because there are so many nice people here! Too often people complain about things, but never say thanks, which is exactly what I was trying to do here.
