some of our associated writers are no longer contributing as frequently and as regularly as they once did. Time, age, health issues and life affect all of us, sometimes adversely but we go on as best we can.  A number of the writers listed below are still actively contributing as often as they can. Read their comments, posts and opinions to show your support for older people who are still creatively involved with the digital world.
