  • Just in case you're wondering where I am...

    Sorry I've been so silent the past week. I learned about two weeks ago that I had to make a trip to Viet Nam - and I'm writing from there now. It's been a whirlwind trip so far (I actually picked up my tickets and passport/visa at the FedEx office on my way to the airport!) and the connections here are painfully slow, so I just haven't had the time to keep up with the forums.

    It's the big Lunar New Year (Tet) celebration in Viet Nam this week and my first time to be here at this time. The entire country is shutting down this entire week and I'm blessed to be sharing it with one of my former student's family. It's doubly fun right now because I brought my laptop with me and have just logged in from my friend's house - the very first time they've accessed e-mail (or had a computer) in their house - so it's causing a bit of excitement.

    Hopefully I'll be able to check into the forums towards the end of the week, but I'm afraid I'll be hopelessly behind by the time I have a chance to really spend some time with it. Perhaps I'll just check in with "reports" of the holiday on this thread from time to time.

    Till next time, Jeanie

      We will miss you but you can certainly make it up by posting some good pictures of your time too. Have fun and we will wait to hear about all the details when you return.

          On Saturday my family (son, almost 4; daughter, almost 6, going on 26, wife [she'd kill me if I told] ) will be headed from the generally rainy and generally cool Seattle area (mid-50's today) to warm and relatively humid Orlando for a night, followed the next five days...

          I just bought a new townhouse and moved a whopping mile and a half from where I was previously at. During this time I was subjected to returning to a dial-up connection until my DSL could be re-established. I don't know how I ever...

          Greetings from the country. I'm glad to see everyone is having a good time while I'm gone and no problems have come up.

          It will take me some time to recover from all this fresh air and quiet. It's just not natural to breath air you can't see.

          I'll be back in a few days....

          Doug, I don't know whether your server has gone over to summer time, but for the last month or so, GMT has moved forward by one hour.

          This is just a point of interest not a bother.

          Just popped in to say hi
          by OhThatGirl2001
          Boy... it's been far too long. I just thought I'd pop by and say hello. It's been quite a year for me. After finishing chemo and radiation this past November... I decided to take the plunge and head back into the workforce for the first time in 12 years (this past April). Sounds crazy? Most people who...
