  1. MF6VJX:~30 min ago I could not sleep well because hearing Bill’s snoring. Since it would stop periodically & suddenly, this reminded me of I believe Joan’s description of her “sleep apnea”. A little reading on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleep_apnea and it it indeed seemed to fit well.  Wanted to record.
