Re: Totally OT: Need your good wishes

Just spoke to Wendy for a moment. She's on her way home and very washed out.

As some of you know I've traveled "a bit" over the past 3 1/2 years (nearly 100 countries) and have written about some of the travels in a series of emails and posts here. During that time, I've stumbled on a "few" (about a [more]

Re: Control Panel: Busy central banks
