Thank you so much for your support, and indeed for defending me against what you perceived as an onslaught of sorts. I think, perhaps naively, that #32718 was genuinely attempting to help but may appear critical due to certain words used. I shall give him/her the benefit of the doubt since I am in such a good mood.
Support was exactly what I was needing. I was emotionally distraught, physically weakened, confused, bewildered, dazed, etc, etc., and the positive sentiments offered were delightfully received.
I persisted with the standard Clark flush as I felt I was on the brink of something great. However, one can only persevere for so long before being so disheartened that another path must be sought. Thus, I plan to compile what I see as the perfect flush (theoretically speaking of course) and experiment somewhere between Thursday and Sunday. Should that fail, then there is always Chinese Bitters, Gold Coin Grass, lecithin, and many other options I am sure.
My definition of insanity: Ceasing to question the All you see.
