Good idea! Maybe on Judy's site as well. This information is
scattered all throughout the posts but hard to find because subject
lines don't always indicate what is in the post. (My pet peeve) a big
comprehensive list could certainly be helpful.

Desk jobs have their own set of problems I understand. Rather have the
painful bones. Good luck with the MRI - hope it finds the problem.

No I didn't see! Tell me more! Best off list so we don't stir up
controversy on list about political things. Unless, of course it is of
interest to all of us and about art education.
Leah and I have an off list communication about the turmoil in
Education in Colorado Springs. I am a Class of '57 graduate of
Colorado Springs High School (which is now the mentioned Palmer High)
and go to reunion every 5 years. We plan to meet face to face at the
next reunion in '07. Leah on the other hand started in NYC and moved to
Colorado. We are just reversed but have much in common.
I love this list!
