Announcing Suspension Of Blog Due To Medical Condition

It is with great regret I announce Monday, due to medical conditions that have now made it unable for me to post entries in the manner I am used to, this will be the last entry I will post until I recover from these situations.

I hope you all of you understand why I am doing this and know I will return, however, I can't give you a timetable on that.

Thank you all for the support you have given my blog.
