I have started doing that, but I resist posting. I have a habit of
responding with my opinion to EVERYTHING (I do that here, don't I?)

Forums & me are a bad mix. They are addictive and I end up spinning my
wheels, arguing with boneheads who can't form a rational thought.
That's why I started a blog!
