Got that right "GottaLuvMinne". The silence/no news mode is deafening, and, Mr. Shorty, a more than worthy adversary, is taking full advantage of it. For lack of a better description, it's been hand-to-hand combat day-in and day-out for the last year and a half, or so, etc.
Hey, on the brighter side, we got the same silence treatment leading up to the last CC, and, the CC turned out better than expected and the S/P popped, etc. Maybe, that's just the way it is, but, I don't have to like it!
