Thank you for the kind words, Richard. They really made my day! I am very grateful for the amount of interests in my threads, though the success of the JLA/JSA ones are surely due to the affections we have to the subject not my meager commentary.

If you are interested, I have several sub headings: "I Was Wondering", "Silver Sightings" and "Fan of Bronze".

Great to have you here and thanks again!

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrs.sandraessien@yahoo.com) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.
