Hi Don!!! It's me!!! And I'm glad to see you're still here as well, my friend!  The dissertation went well and if I could change my name to Dr. Mohawk, everyone would know it!!! But my life went off the rails during the last phase......I lost both my stepmom and mom to cancer within months of each other, so I was kind of messed up for a while, hence my disappearance.  However, I'm doing much better now and I'm glad to be back!!!

Typos --

It's "billon shekel" not "billion shekel."

[Your reply completely stumped my wife and a quick internet check revealed why. The opening sentence in Wikipedia states the alloy "Billon," with a capital B, is not to be confused with billon or bullion. To me, it's all just electrum, or a close cousin.]

...or with the quantity "billion" = 1x10
