You know, I haven't been on the Museum regularly in a while, but yesterday I felt a disturbance in the ether and felt that I needed to log in. Now I know why - Welcome back Ben! Your posts always bring a smile to my face.
As for Berto, I agree wholeheartedly. I'd heard this story once before, but it warms my heart to hear it again. He and his brother Tom are excellent human beings who are like family to me (the kind I like ). I raise my glass (of tea, because I am stuck at work) to Berto for his key role in helping Ben bring us this wonderful book, and to Ben, who stuck it out when others would have folded to give this gift to the World. Slainte!
