DFW

Hard to believe we made it out the door this morning considering this is where we were last night:


But make it we did. I was a little bent out of shape over a few things (cabbie who didn't help load luggage, very unhelpful ticket agent) but once we got past security at MSP I was skipping and smiling...now we're in Dallas, I'm past the cuff on a new sock (pictures later) and I'm still smiling...

And just a note regarding the Gates Foundation, libraries and grants ... Chile was the recipient of a grant some years ago to get their libraries hooked up to the Internet ... As kmkat mentioned in earlier comments, you can complain about Microsoft, but not about the Gates Foundation...

And thanks to the kat for this too - and currently showing on CNN in the DFW airport, Franken is now ahead in the Senate race....

What fun to get an update from you in Dallas. Somehow I knew you would get the news about Franken... this is a fascinating process.

Enjoy the lack of snow, my friends!
