  1. well that is an impressive list of ta da-s:) well done congratulations and now enjoy a well earned break however brief – see you next round – keep smiling:)


  2. Congrats on all that progress with your classes, especially with that “distinction” for Australian Studies, perfect for your interests in travel. I also appreciated your honesty in reporting you didn’t make every check-in. Have to admit I even blew this last deadline. But all’s well. July 6 beckons. Have a lovely few days off — and keep writing!
