Fellow space friends- I apologize for being offline, but for the past year my situation forced me to be bed-ridden and confined in a care center — without the internet!

It may seem that in the 21st century that the whole world would be connected with hot spots, but surprisingly no. At first I treated it like a cruise but as time wore on it was like a long-duration mission to Jupiter. Later on, I eventually even built some spacecraft models.

I am well now but have to use a walker to get around. But what a year.

Glad you're back. Being offline for a year would be difficult for me. I work in IT all day long... And for what it's worth, sometimes I agree with Jimmy Buffett:
You're caught up in the internet.
You think it's such a great asset.
But you're wrong, wrong, wrong.
We're all "Fruitcakes" in one form or another!

Welcome back to cS, J.M.! Building spacecraft models in your downtime sounds like you made the most of it.

Catch up, stay well, and enjoy our company again!

Glad you're back J.M. I noticed a scarcity of E2M Lem Man posts! Question - how do you deal with a year of emails?

Jim, good to have you back on board. You are one of the best and I'm sure you'll make up for all that lost time.
