Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
BTW Migeru, I took a break in June, so I may be very bad at maths but it's not been 9 months.
Besides, you know pretty well I will take as demeaning of me your saying that there's been months of now regular newcomers.
Should I chose to be offended, I would distinctly sense the innuendo : "there's been a lot of worthwhile stuff going on since you left so peace off and get back to the almost-newbies category where you belong".
However, I have enough bad stuff on my plate to deal with in the off-blog world to afford feeling belittled over here. I thus back off, enough for today, the diary I was at can wait.

As I like to say : by underestimating people's strengths you might get hurt. By understating their weaknesses, you are sure to hurt them.

When through hell, just keep going. W. Churchill

Geez, I took the 9 months from you comment, and I misinterpreted it.

But really, all that Fran is saying is that you cannot go away for a substantial period of time (ok, it's been 5 months, not 9) and expect that on your return everyone is going to know who you are, or what "Gone with the Windmill" is. Innuendo? Give me a break.

Ack, I shouldn't have pitched into this thread at all. If you're bent on misunderstanding what Fran said and then my attempt at explaining it, I'm doing more harm than good.
