Hi, orange yonason !

Thanks for your kind words.

The present situation reminds me of a fairy tale in which the wolves fooled the sheep to let them have a say in electing the shepherd. Nowadays we have plenty of shepherds indebted to the wolves for their office of protecting the sheep. The results are disastrous.

Best regards!
