Even someone from Viet Nam, where my own sweet son was born! A while ago there was also someone from Beijing, China, where my own sweet daughter was born. :)

You all must speak English, because I only know one language to blog in and that is it. I am so impressed. I tried speaking music for a couple of years there, and recently have decided to give it up. I guess that it is OK to not do everything ... but they say learning music keeps our brains in full gear as we get older. I thought that it would be good preventative medicine. I guess that I will have to wait until I am 70. Perchance I will have a few less items ranging around in my brain keeping me busy then ...?? Well, probably not.

After all, I just found out about Blog Parties and I will still be throwing those ... OH!!! and a mom friend of mine showed me her EXTRAordinarily exciting laptop yesterday. It is just like the one in the movie "Read It and Weep": you can twist the screen around and flip it closed and then take the stylus and WRITE which it will then change to a type font and scoot into your document, or you can DRAW!!!

You are laughing at me. I can tell. These computers have been out for years. There are computers now that will iron tomorrow's clothes and wrap birthday gifts for you. But drawing!

Yeah, but can they bead?

Perhaps not, but they can read your handwriting! And preserve all of your little doodles ...


So thank you for visiting with me Estonians, and Portugese and Ecuadorians and Britishers and French and, and everyone else, and of course all of you lovely US folk.

Now, back to my party decorations...
