Ron, are you leaving or just joking?

Don't leave, I have particularly benefited from your low carb posts.

I wish you wouldn't go RonBoyd. Saying "goodbye cruel world" is very worrisome to me. Could you please let us know what happened either here or in a PM?

What? What happened?

Hope things are OK Ron and that this is a joke or temporary hiatus. If not, happy trails and feel free to PM me any time.

Yeah, what happened? Yes, the world is cruel, but most people here aren't. I know I am not. I hope this is a joke.

Does that mean you don't need your computer anymore? If you give it to me, I ensure that a good charity gets it. Perhaps the Human Fund.

General Douglas MacArthur said it best;

So, he'll be back.

Much rather you didn't depart Ron. Maybe you are coming back in a new incarnation? I hope so.
