Hi Karl,

Thanks for your response. Your judgment on my skill level is noted, but I don’t think that I was claiming that my interpretation of your comment was qualitatively good, but, rather, that I had quoted you exactly and then interpreted it in my own way. Which, I believe, to be the soul of blogging.

I expect the ‘value’ that people receive from my postings to be different depending on their point of view and willingness to adapt to my particular idiom. I thank you for providing me with the far extreme (so far) of those who don’t like it.
