It's so impressive how much you read! I was feeling glad to have read one book this year.

Cheryl- I just realized I don't have your email address and I'm desperate to get a message to William. My Google Chrome is going banana balls: opens bookmarks in another window, then shuts them down when I click on them, won't let me use the back button, etc. etc. My sister in law's is translating everything into Hebrew. And my sister (who works for Microsoft) says hers is super slow... like 1995 slow. I already logged off and on again, tried uninstalling and reinstalling, swearing at it, and nothing's working! Please tell William to tell the Chrome cronies to do something. I'm having to go Amish and use Internet Explorer. Oh the humanity!!!

Also, you just need to get back to blogging because I miss you. And I took my family abroad. And Londoners are insanely rude.

Aaand I need your email address.
