Thank you to everyone leaving comments - it is nice to know you are all still out there.
Unfortunately the gremlins are not sending them to me by e-mail (despite my having the settings to send them to me). So I try and remember how many comments are on, say, the three most recent posts.
But at the moment, unless I work out what is going on, if you ask a question on an older post, I am just not going to see it. Sorry. :(
