I did not intend to offer offense, Eileen, and I'm sorry that it was
taken. It's just that, as vice-president of a Celtic Reconstructionist
organization, my recommendations are sometimes quoted and I am concerned
about misimpressions--especially when they concern the Mathewses' stuff.
People sometimes will latch onto one post out of a whole thread. It
would be the height of irony for people to be quoting me as a fan of the
Mathewses' work! ;);)

I was just trying to let people know about one of his courses, that's
all, not trying to imply anything more than that. And I am jealous of
your having been able to take not one but two of his courses!
