Forgive my tardiness in responding to your thread, I've been vacationing on the sunny and somewhat dirty gulf coastal beaches of Texas (all part of the charm). I've enjoyed reading your thoughts and views on various subjects herein and do share your affinity for topic immersion. As such, I hope to engage you on a topic or two when lightning strikes and the rod stands ready. Until then, welcome, based upon what I've read I think you'll find herein a room full of familiars!
I see nothing to forgive...you are living your idea of happiness and that is what life is all about! It is a pleasure to finally meet you though, and yes, we can talk about topic immersion and other subjects anytime you desire. Thank you for taking the time to read my introduction.
