If you contact me: I have changed the place where visitors to this website can make and reply to comments. This became necessary because comments were made on the various pages and so they could not be tracked properly. Comments should now be made at the BOTTOM OF THE PAGE “FORUM & COMMENTS”, if you want other people to see them and reply (or directly to me at fmpatorni@earthlink.net) . I have disabled the comments feature on the other pages. The comments that you made on various pages in the past are in my personal log, I will try to shift them to the new page, but until then the old comments will remain on the page where they were originally made.

I reply directly to the comments by e-mail to the sender, as well as occasionally through this website.
