Condolences to our Canadian friends,

particularly Marie (itea).  Heard about the derailment/explosion in Lac-Megantic.  Firefighters from the US are helping.  My prayers are with you.

Took me 10 times to sign no today, so all my replies will be here.  Kathy, congrats.  Hope real estate is in better shape there than it is here.  Many of my friends haven't closed a deal in YEARS, and basically have moved into different jobs.

Kelly, Rae landed in Madrid early this morning.  She and her gf flew from Chicago to Frankfurt, and caught a connecting flight from there.  Then it is on to Seville, Granada, Valencia, and Barcelona.  They are VERY excited.  We are VERY anxious.  They posted pics on FB, but never bothered to CALL and let us know they were alive.  Ah youth.

Well, at least you know via Facebook.  DS texted us when he got to Peru, but we only just got a proper email from him on Friday, two weeks after he left.

Thank you Sabr for your kind words.

I am sure that the people of Lac Mégantic are grateful for the help from across the border.  It is just a horrible tragedy.
