Frank, I can assure you that your absence has been commented on and several people expressed the hope that it was not because of illness or anything untoward.
As for double-digging, I remember advocating this to someone last autumn - and although some felt that this was unnecessary, I was not shouted down
Some regulars are no longer here, but some of us remain, and we have lots of new regulars too, some even older than I (and I've retired since we last 'spoke') - several of whom also believe that there will always be a place for more traditional methods.
It is good to 'see' you.
