Dear Readers: I appreciate your patience while I have been going through treatment for Inflammatory Breast Cancer that was diagnosed in early February. I am asking for your patience again. This will likely be the last regular issue for a few weeks while I recuperate from surgery that is scheduled Monday in Spokane. My surgical oncologist has advised me that I am not to spend too much time at the computer or doing other repetitive tasks involveing my arms and shoulders for a few weeks while I heal. I may be able to post period things, but not regular issues for a bit. I appreciate your prayers and support.--Nancy
