> Have a happy family gathering...
Thank you, Ingvild!
My sister came to visit from Florida and we celebrated Christmas
early this last week. We had 6 dinner gatherings in one week...my
sister's friends of course had to come visit her to see her after
five years!.... My father also turned 86 years old last week, and my
mother performed her poetry (read her poetry outloud)...at a library
party for poets...so it was a wonderful holiday celebration with
family. We are very blessed!
And what did my sister get herself for Christmas at the Apple Store
yesterday? A new Mac laptop!
And what did Val get while she was in the Apple Store? The new Mac OS
X Leopard operating system, and Microsoft Office 2008...grin...I am
excited about the new Mac Time Machine backup system, that is built-
in to Leopard... that automatically archives your entire computer in
a very visual way, every hour I believe...I hope to backup our
servers with the new Time Machine which is the best backup software I
have ever seen...and there are other new features that are quite
wonderful, such as QuickLook, where you can view the contents of
files without launching the software that created them...and also
Boot Camp, which means I can use my Mac to boot directly from Windows
XP or Vista, so one machine runs both Mac and PC natively...
So we had a lot of fun sharing clothes, books, CDs, DVDs and computers!
Now that our holiday time is over, I look forward to completing the
ISWA 2008, to be released in January 2008. So this month I will focus
on the symbols, adding the larger movement arrows people have
requested for so long...I have completed most of the Ethiopian
Handshapes...there are a couple more...they will get done!
Then January must focus on Cat in the Hat, which must be posted by
the end of January on the web, or we will lose our permission to post
by the Seuss Foundation, so here is my schedule:
January...Cat in the Hat
February...Sleeping Beauty and other things...
That is as far as I can think right now!
And of course, Ingvild and Anny and other writers, I look forward to
posting your works and will always be here for any technical support
Ingvild - I will get to your document next, and then Anny - thanks
for the information you sent...very exciting! Yours will be done
right after Ingvild's...
