Marcie, with all due respect, you don't need to defend Misha, and you don't
need to take up my time or that of others on the list, since we do not have
any control over what happens to your name on the Internet, so don't fuss at
me because I like advertising, especially when it helps me find markets for
my farm products.
Btw, my experience of Misha's writing is that it is very long-winded, often
totally off the subject of this list, and yes I do delete frequently.
Now, can we get back on subject?
