Just so we're clear, the rumors of my retirement were greatly exaggerated. The announcement last Thursday regarding my retirement was an April Fool's Day prank.
I guess I should be thankful that five days after April Fool's Day and after altering the original posting to say "It Was All A Joke", I'm STILL getting e-mail from people begging me to come back or wishing me well in retirement. :)
Thank you all for your support and your kind words.
