A few inquiries causes this note as to spacing between new reports. I continue to have cardiac tests, and see my cardiologist next month. Folks, I read every item I post a link for, and refuse to hurry the process. Planned is a supplement to this report for Friday. Thank you for your loyalty to this free report. Hopefully I will get some stamina back which will allow more regular posting. Please, be kind to one another.
