Hello all you wonderful people out there!

The interactive boards are very successful! And, for that, I thank all of you.

I started experimenting with the boards some time ago. The feedback was so good, they became almost standard practice. In the beginning, once I put a board up, if I looked at it again at all, it was to correct spelling errors. But, you guys are magnetic. Over time I became more and more involved in corresponding with the posters, which is stuff I love to do. But it was only a matter of time before keeping up with the boards had become more than I could handle.

So, as much as part of me would love to continue posting at the rate I have been (each active board getting at least a weekly review with lots of comments), I can no longer keep up this pace. Just no time and lots of other stuff to do! 

I've decided to return to an earlier frame of reference when my "policy" was to do as much or as little as I had time for. So, I'm taking my own advice and am de-stressing. I thought you guys deserved an explanation as to why I may be taking a less active role in the boards.  

Please continue posting as much as you want. I think it's great and I support you. Sometimes I'll make my presence known and sometimes I won't. But, I will be lurking in the background. Promise!

Warmest wishes,

Dr. Irene and Trubble
