    I appreciate all your hard work Alvin, and have noticed the great uptick in events and subsequent work on your part to keep us informed, and sincerely hope you are getting enough rest! It struck me today how utterly lost I would feel without your site , so my prayers now include you.

    God bless you!

      I second what Lucie said Alvin. You might find this kind of funny, Alvin. Me and Bundy were talking about how alarmed you seem to be getting with the escalation of events, and she said that when you start saying good luck that means head to the nearest safe mountain. LOL!
