A few quick things

Hey all, here is some odds and ends...some might interest you, some might not, here goes anyway:

1. For a nice laugh call the Nestle Crunch Hot line at 1-800-295-0051. When you are asked if you want to continue in English or Spanish, just wait quietly for about 10 seconds and you will smile. Keep going and press 4 listen to the options... and listen to each one, especially number 7. Made me want to go out and by a Nestle Crunch for sure. Also be prepared to have to call several times to get through...this is becoming fairly popular.

2. Have any of you used Rosetta Stone for your children to do foreign language acquisition? We are considering using some present money given for the kids for that, since they already love using the two cheap CDs we bought several years ago for studying French.

3. I am looking for a good, fast, 15" or so laptop for $700 or less for the mission. If you have ideas or suggestions, let me know.

4. On a serious note...say a prayer for Valerie, as starting her vacation from the clinic with a cold is not exactly what she had in mind.
5. She even got to experience some quality time with me this afternoon seeing what my trips to the bank are like....this one was not too bad, I think we were in and out in under an hour. Hopefully our work load will diminish before Friday when hopefully we can truly relax and celebrate Christ's birth.

6. How about some pictures from the Milk Project Christmas party. Big fun stuff for Christmas here of course includes toys (donations from the US) but also apples, grapes (with seeds, is there any other kind?) and tamales. Last week they were able to have all four....a rare treat for them indeed. For many, this was their family Christmas meal.
