The opening shot of your personal photos showed you biking beside elk. Or were they reindeer? You bicycled all the way to the North Pole!

Thanks again for you beautiful Christmas "card".

I'm boycotting the Christmas Video until you come back and post once in a while!


OK, not really. Nice job as always. I remember just enough Korean for the Thank You's to jump out for me (something-something-ham-nee-da.) And great music.

Merry Christmas

Thanks, guys.

Nothing personal about not visiting the forum. I was just spending too much time here, and I'm a-scared of getting hooked in again. The 12-step share-a-holics program is going well -- one day at a time. But it was fun to see the old familiar handles.
