Chalk up another atheist sending you good wishes, Ohramona.
It must be a difficult time for you both, so I'm sending you and Skeezix positive vibes right now. Remember the old Irish saying (no, not the one about potatoes and Guinness being the answers to all ills), "Maireann croí éadrom i bhfad" (A light heart lives longest).
"Ireland is a great country to go to if you think you're drinking too much. Because it turns out you're not even close"
