Oh, gosh, it's so overwhelming! My most cordial thanks for everything you’ve just written.
And please don’t ever try to think that your blog will remain unnoticed as nobody is going to read it, OK? At least, one regular reader you are definitely guaranteed. Not only because we’ve been known each other so many years, no. You’ve just somehow managed to push me out my zone of comfort, to get me to do what I was planning long ago, but was lazy to start. Your decision to blog here in English lured me to do the same.
So, welcome aboard, my friend! ;)
