    I'm really sorry I didn't make it out tonight. A lot of unexpected things came up this weekend.

      Won't make it tonight. Back from Europe and got hit while waiting at customs at BWI with immediate sore throat that went into lungs the next day. Figured out this morning its allergies/asthma rather than illness a lot of people had on ship. Still exhausted and worried about doggie dander making this worse so I'm going to pass on tonight. I also was rather disheartned by the book. I found the book rather appalling with regard to corruption, cynasism and general nastiness at all levels of Indian society. Made me think India is in a hopeless rut and squashed all desire to ever go there.

      Thanks Pat. Hope you feel better soon. I will bring your opinion about the book to the meeting 2nite. I also found it very disparaging.

      Thank you Anita. My doctors are still trying to figure out what is causing the edena. I'm eating very little sodium, no processed food, etc. I've lost 12 lbs since this all started. We both know thqt's good.
