I have posted every single day that I can remember from 2006 -- OMG, I guess it's been 10 years now, except for the 2 weeks I was in Cuba over Christmas, but even then I set up drips on my personal blog. It's a day without sunshine, a day without hope, if I don't post something on AR and chat with my friends here.

Hi Tony & Suzanne - I've never taken one and I'm superstitious about doing it. Many members have and then come back for only a brief time and are gone.
