Hi Barry, Thanks for your comment. I tried to post back, but it kept crashing my stupid gov't computer (I'm at home now!). Have you checked the blog in the last 24 hrs? Amazing stuff going on over there! If you are not already a member of Left Bank, you might want to check it out. As the tagline says: Socialism is not a bad word there!
