david here --

Thanks for your testimony.

This week I did the S/K model in my religion classes.  I never think about
S/K without remembering that most of what I know about S/K I learned at the
feet of Joe Pierce.

We need to coordinate December/January dates re: Mexico -- so we can
purchase our tickets.
How does this sound:  Fly down on 26th December and return January 10th
(give or take a day one way or the other depending on flight availability.

Let us hear from you.
