SignWriting List
December 14, 2008

Hello Anny!
THANK YOU very much for this report about your SignWriting meeting in  
French-Switzerland in November, and also the work you are doing as a  
SignWriting association...I really enjoyed visiting your web pages. I  
love the photos with your Sign Names written directly beside the  
photos. It is quire impressive to see the serious work you are  
doing...and I hope the Bible translation project starts to use  
SignWriting...since it is already being used to write Bible passages  
in several other sign languages, such as ASL, Catalan Sign Language  
and Maltese Sign Language...

I have had several invitations lately to meet people on Facebook and I  
confess I have not gotten used to Facebook yet, but I look forward to  
doing that over Christmas...thank you for the invitation to meet on  

I would like to fix a SignPuddle button that needs to be translated  
better into French, but I need your help to write to me privately to  
tell me exactly what I need to do...I apologize for my confusion but  
now is a good time for us to accomplish that little task...

Thank you for the lovely Christmas card - I will post it on the web -

Val ;-)
