A1Jim no longer has time for LJs… is sad but true… I was devastated …I do understand though… he is busy with other things….. and after over 2500000000000 posts he will be sorely missed. Do not think badly of him… he really has other things to think about..

I have missed him, too. Whatever it is, I hope he has the best of luck until he can return.

Degoose. Of course I do not think badly of him. I was just concerned. he obviously loves this site, so it must be something pretty important if he is not participating any more! Hopefully all is well on his end!

I just think that life now is a bit overwhelming for many- trying to keep ahead of the tax man and the mortgage man- and trying to figure a way to make some money when the unemployment expires. Things in the US are deplorable now, and it is really consuming people- literally. So Jim- if you see this post, know that many of us are in the same boat- and for whatever reason most of us aren’t on nearly as often as we used to be. Including me. :)

I have also missed him, also. I would like to know how he is and what he’s doing and if everything is ok. However, I wouldn’t want to intrude so maybe he will come back occasionally.

Glad to hear he has been busy and will be back. Busy is good these days. I also wish him and his family well.

Take care, Jim if you are reading this! We’ll look forward to your return!
