Hello Everyone, Stefan, Stephen, Jerry -
Wow. I am really disappointed that everyone didn't have the same 
experience. They claimed that if you had the latest java installed on 
your browser that it would work for everyone...The reason I am 
disappointed is that, as you know, there are many different video 
formats in the world...In my world of the Mac, I can, in two seconds, 
post beautiful video on the web in QuickTime...that is the .mov or 
.mpg4 formats...and for the Mac world...we can all view it. But I know 
that many people use Windows Media Player, which is another 
format...and I am going to have to learn all this...I had hoped this 
other idea of the link would solve those issues for us...oh well!!

The one good thing about this link method, is that it works with all 
computers if you have java installed, so I suppose, even if it jerks, 
it is still better than nothing...I will keep learning...smile...

So this has slowed my ability to be able to write the poem with 
you...So instead I am going to create still photos and attach them to 
the email messages...Please see next message on writing poetry from 

And I have some great news from James Shepard Kegl! He has written over 
500 Nicaraguan signs in Sign Puddle for Nicaragua...So I will make the 
flag for Nicaragua today too...
