Hello annelidans,

The response for my request (below) has been overwhelming and I thank all
of you who have taken time to respond to my email. It is really heartening
to see a group that is as active and supportive as this e-group is and
though I will separately respond to all of you who have written to me, I
felt I need to congratulate the e-group in general for the energy and

Keep up the good work.

Thanks again,
