Thank you Ven. Appicchato, always good to know what is permissible. Have net, will travel.

Great to hear from you, Bhante. Feel better.

"To reach beyond fear and danger we must sharpen and widen our vision. We have to pierce through the deceptions that lull us into a comfortable complacency, to take a straight look down into the depths of our existence, without turning away uneasily or running after distractions." -- Bhikkhu Bodhi

Hi all,

Thanks again for your good wishes. Today I shall be going to another hospital for minor surgery and hope to be back here early next week.

Best wishes,

Greetings bhante,

I hope you're doing well and bearing up against all those pokes, prods and jabs.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Hi JC,

Thanks for the offer, but I don't think I'm in need of anything at the moment. (At least not unless you want to carry me about on your shoulders).

Best wishes,

Yes, I'm limping but living. I hope your recovery is proceeding well too.

Hello Bhante,

If there is anything you need from England, please do not hesitate to let me know.

I sent you an email to your old address and it was returned.

Please get well soon.

Best wishes,

Andrew

Hi Andrew,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel and thanks for your kind wishes. I've actually been well for over a week now.

Some months ago I reverted to using my old Icelandic e-mail account as it has better spam control than the Thai one:
