Hello Everyone,

Things have been busy for me as of late; my mother (who suffered from Alzheimer's and congestive heart failure) recently died.

This has been a very difficult two years (the time that she was in a nursing home), and I have had a lot on my plate (and still do, now that I have to sell her old house, which I have been living in), but I simply wanted to thank Guro Crafty for having such a great website, where I could "get away" from time to time and share MA experiences with fellow enthusiasts.  I would also like to thank all the practioners of various martial arts and combat sports that post on this site; I have learned something from each and every one of you.

It will be some time before I return to doing any "epic"-sized posts, but I will be around.

Best Regards To All,

David Black Mastro

So sorry for your loss.  I have been there.  Someone said to me the night my dad died, "these dark days will pass."  He was right.
