I know it has been awhile, but I did not fall off the face of the Earth.
Last year has been hell and that is an understatement. My mother passed earlier in the year and my father just passed recently. If that wasn't hard enough, then there are other things that have come from that. Not worth getting into, but needless to say you end up knowing who your real family is.
On the other side of the spectrum I have been working on a few projects. So hopefully they will be seen soon.
