I am happy to tell you all that James sent me a letter via regular mail after I wrote him with sympathies over the loss of his father, Charles. James, his wife Sylvia and son Pierce are all well. He has leased his farm and is teaching computer courses full time. I suspect he "burned out" with the responsibilities of keeping pace with all the folks that consulted with him for so long about their families in Ireland. He probably deserves a rest! At the same time, his land line phone and high speed service became unbearable in his area. He and his wife adopted cell phones and have no regular phone line at all. He has no web available for now. He can probably use the computers where he teaches to get all the information he needs. So now we know. He is not mad at anyone and, as he grows older, is realizing that friends and relatives are valuable and important. Perhaps he will re-appear on this site at some future time!
