Hi John, Thanks for getting back to me.  Alas, despite my best intentions, I, too, barely use this site.  I was hoping to generate a few snail-mailing exchanges & I've succeeded slightly with that.  Of course, most of us are using electronic means more often.  My 2 biggest additions to my online presence are these 2 webpages where I've started posting interviews (so far largely neoism related) from my substantial archive:
