i am without a shrooming learner’s permit.
Danny , thank you again. But I believe you exaggerate. I am just learning and because I awfully lack shrooming mileage, I ‘spend’ a little longer at each my observation as normally on MO.
i know i say it every time, but these observations of yours absolutely floor me. they are the standard by which I judge my own, dramatically poorer contributions to this site. I am so thankful that you are here, doing what you do. bravo.
