<quoted text>Hello BLong, good to 'see' you! What I've been is busy! Started off with a grandchild's arrival, the holidays, a funeral, a blizzard a wedding, flooding, and critical and acute medical emergencies with a couple of immediate family members, but I am well because of/in spite of it all now.
How have you been over there?
Sounds as if there's been joy and some sadness. I'm glad that everything has leveled out for you and that all is well.
Things have been okay. I just wish that things would pick up a bit more here, where I work. Makes me a bit jittery about a job that I've had now for 35 years, that is by no means secure.

Have a good evening.
Always a pleasure 'hearing' from you, Pais.

Surely the news isn't painting a rosier than reality picture of our 'recovery', are they?? No doubt. I'm sending my best hope and prayer that your job is there as long as you need it!
There's ominous signs here too; some of my kid's friends are reporting the slowest restaurant Winter seasons they've ever seen, retail outlets are abandoned in all but the most affluent areas, and the real unemployment rate for those 18-35 is reported to be over 40%...dang.
