Nice to hear from you again. I was wondering where you had disappeared 
and thought that you had perhaps come into a vast amount of money and 
decided to retire in the splendour of bliss somewhere on earth. Some 
people actually equate the making of bread as this, so, in a way, you 
are already there.

All the very best with your health and nice to have you back.
