What is actually ridiculous is the lousy job the moderators of the forum have done in this thread, which is full of personal attacks and nastiness.

Uncle Mick is obviously still kicking. I would have guessed he's still soaking in the Sol Duc natural hot springs. Hi there!

Umm... I notice CuppaJoe has also been missing.

Yes- let's hope some mod knows where she is, or that she will check in. I thought of her this afternoon while fixing dinner because I am going to an opera tonight, and I know that she is a big opera fan.

What are you seeing Ha? I love opera. When I worked in NYC, the young wife and I had a subscription to the Met. I believe Martha is also an opera fan.

Last I heard from CuppaJoe she was fine, but busy. I expect she will check in soon.
