    1. I’m visiting several times a day to check on articles and comments, but I have nothing in particular to ask or report about…

  2. I will read the comments about Oraefajokull, and I keep lurking about Jon’s site. Things will happen in their own time. I think events will continue to unfold. Perhaps, those events have already started.
