It would appear that I have been receiving loads of messages from people reading my posts and for some reason they haven't been getting to me. I am so very sorry. I have not answered any because I did not know they were there. I will now attempt to reply to you all.
Apparently my comments notification by email was set-up incorrectly, and so I should now be getting everyone's comments, and I will answer all of them! So keep them coming, please...
My sincere apologies!
