i have not forgotten you, dear readers. Once again, I had gotten a virus on my computer for the past few months and did not deal with it, until yesterday. But the most important thing has been, I have lost my brother through a massive heart attack. He passed away July 4th. His suffering and death has changed me in some ways. Not yet able to express what is and has been on my heart. Just letting the readers know. Thank you for any thoughts or/and prayers you may send our way. God watch between you and me while we are absent from one another.

Love, redeemed hippie (AKA Brenda)
