  3. @ Keith: Thanks for stopping by! I'm glad you're not shy but many people are too shy to leave comments on blogs. Which is a pity. It must be very exciting living in the US right now - you must feel similar to how we felt in South Africa when Mandela becae president - hopeful.

    Thank you for commenting because you introduced me to the One World blog.
