Hello John and Everyone!
You and I are the fortunate ones with good weather today. Here in San
Diego it is springtime today...70 degrees farenheit or around 21
degrees Celcius...I only wish the whole SignWriting List could travel
through cyberspace and land in my front yard! ;-))
I now have a brand new cable modem and my goodness, the internet is
fast again! I am so happy!!
So if any of you ever experience the internet slowing down, and your
modem is several years old, there is a chance it can be the
modem...something to remember...
And while I was waiting for the technician, I completed the English
translation of pages 1-12 of Stefan's excellent book: The SignWriting
Handbook. Actually, Stefan did the English translation (very well
done, Stefan!). All I did was edit it a little, and then place the
translation on the book layout pages....The goal? To create the
complete English translation in a document that will be printed for
people who purchase the German book...so when it is all finished, I
will inform you...
Meanwhile, I believe, Stefan, that you taught SignWriting this month
