A whole year has passed since I last posted. It was a long needed break. I had been busy with school and family. I think I am now ready to start blogging again. I have to admit I was inspired after reading DallasLao's Blog http://dallaslao.wordpress.com/ . He reminded me that he blogs to share his experiences with people like myself. And I love reading blogs. I haven't been keeping up with my usual list of blogs, except perhaps Kirk's mmm-yoso http://mmm-yoso.typepad.com/ .
