Does the node between D2 and D3 need to be connected to ground?

You are absolutely right, the nodes does need to be connected to ground. If you look at that node, and the follow the wire from where D2 and D3 join, I ran that wire the same ground as my capacitor and load, because they needed to be grounded too. For consistency's sake I did that. If you wanted to, you could separate the node between D2 and D3 from the other two components and ground it separately, you should see no impact on the output.

Hope this helps!

Yeah, thanks. ...I appreciate your taking the time answer.

The whole concept of Circuitlab is extremely advanced and very, very useful. ...
