>I came across several once-familiar
names, of people who have not posted in WEEKS.

Things are a little messy down here now. But in a fortnight or less, like the Phoenix, I will rise from my own ashes!.

Thanks, everyone, for your help with healthful/healthy and Tom Swifty. I need to ask one more question, though. I'm still in the running for first place but need the answer for the 26th and final (for the first half of the year) question. Here it is: Which name for the Prince of Darkness comes from the Latin for 'light-bringer'? I've been to more vampire/vampyre sites than I could imagine existed but no luck. And I've also been to Latin translating sites. My son thinks the answer is Lestat for some reason which I can't remember. Thanks in advance for any help.

that has to be Lucifer.

Dang, Tsuwm! You posted while I was looking it up!
Jackiemw: Latin-English dictionary
says: bring on=infero
to bring=affero
light=lux lucis.
Even for someone who never took Latin, these are enough
for me to say Lucifer, with certainty!
Though I also had a clue by knowing that what makes lightning bugs light up is luciferin.
