Don't blink

Some of you may have thought that the lapse in my writing is due to laziness - but not so! This time I have a good excuse (don't I always?) The fabulous Turkish Government suspended access to blogspot. Almost a year ago, they banned YouTube, and now apparently they are going after blogspot. I have been checking back every day for any changes and today - the suspension has been lifted. So I am writing before I blink and my access is blocked again. I was hopeful when I saw that it was a suspension and not an outright ban. Although - YouTube started out as a suspension too. If worse comes to worse, I will start a blog on a different site. Lets hope it doesn't come to that.



Things are back to our normal craziness here, as we are gearing up for "Operation Birthday Overload". I am sure you all remember that each one of my children has a birthday in the next week and a half. At least this year I have convinced the boys that having one big party will be FUN! Maryn wasn't fooled. Besides, she wants a girls only party. She knows she will win the arguement when she plays that card. I sympathize way too much with the "I'm out numbered by boys" plea. =)

Hey! This video I have been trying to post since May finally worked! Now you can see a little bit of our village =) Maybe I'll try to post the video of our house too.

YIPPEE! It worked! I apologize for the quality, but hey - at least it is posted! I try every time I write, and it usually fails!

Hi, this is Scott Nebeker, an old friend of Michael's. Could you please let Michael know that I sent him an email to his yahoo account a few weeks ago. I look forward to hearing from him.
