thank you for sharing that... Feb 22, 2007

Luisa,
Thanks for letting us know about this. Too far for me to go (and a little off the topic of what I do), but I'd love to be able to get any handouts that are distributed. Do you think that would be possible? I suppose I could track down the presenters and ask, but is there any phone number for an office that is organizing this?
Thanks again!
Patricia

I will get them Feb 22, 2007

I can scan whatever they distribute and email it to you after the conference. Just make sure you remind me by sending me an email through Proz. My memory was green and then the cows ate it!

LOL Feb 22, 2007

Thanks so much for offering to scan things!!

My memory went to cows long ago, too! (Actually, the other morning, I was working away with my back to the window, when I heard the oddest tapping noise; I turned around and there was a heifer eating my rose bushes (every time she took a bite, her horns hit the wall)! Good thing she couldn't get inside or half of my brain would have been gone before I knew what had happened!).

I will put this on my black board so that I remember. Thanks so much for offering to scan things!! I hope you have a enjoyable morning at the presentation...

Again, Luisa, thanks!
