    Thanks for the blog Kim, I also was wondering about Brian, I so enjoy his contests and everytime I came on the soup, I looked for a contest from him and there was none. Brian I will pray for your wife's speedy recovery and for your return to the soup. Love Constance

    Kim, I did not read blogs yesterday and haven't in a few days so I did not know about this until this morning..The reason that I knew about this this morning is that I thought about Brian yesterday and I remembered not seeing his name anywhere for awhile or no contest run by him..Therefore, I soup mailed him..He answered sometimes after I signed off last night and told me to check your blog..I am truly sadden to hear of his wife's illness..I hope that she has a speedy recovery...Sara

    I too thought it was a vacation. I'll remember both you and your wife in my prayers each day. Give us a heads up now and then... We'll miss you. Yours truly. Carol

    I, too, have missed seeing you here, Brian. You are part of the foundation of the Soup. We have learned so much from you, your blogs, and from your inspired words. I pray that your wife will have a swift recovery, yes, it is understandable that she is your priority. I hope all is well very soon. In the meantime, thank you for all your encouragement these many years, and hope you will find your way back. Take care and best wishes.....Carrie

    Hi Kim and everyone,After 200 contests and 800 blogs over the past 5 years it was time to take what you guys call ...'a time out' from PS .On a personal level my wife will be hospitalised shortly and her convalescence etc will be my priority over this Autumn. Thanks for your concerns, soupmail me if you want updates(more info) as I will check in from time to time.Best wishes to you all with your creative endeavours.Rgds Brian

    Thanks for the info Andrea. I just thought it strange that he dropped off the radar suddenly.

    I contacted Brian a while back and and I think I recall that he said he was ok. Maybe some personal things he had to take care of that he did not want to discuss with me. I'm sure he will be back!!

    I've missed him, too, Kim. Since no one mentioned it, I assumed he was on vacation. I hope he's alright.
