Yes, itâ€™s been a while. Mainly this has to do with the main hard drive in my main computer dying, and finding out afterward that my backup software wasnâ€™t nearly as good as I thought it was. And then, once I got everything back in order, I had to work up the enthusiasm to re-figure-out how this project was done. I think Iâ€™ve done well enough. Weâ€™ll see, I suppose.

At any rate, next time weâ€™ll be taking a ride on the â€œWheel of Fortune.â€ Stay tuned, wonâ€™t you?
