    to my florida peeps..
    i have a firend in the miami area (she lives about 1/2 hour away from miami - north she is about 1/2 way tween miam and the big city just north of you whatever that is..) aaaanyway...

    she woudl like to get back in touch with the goddess again. are there some good bookstores that offer classes, that i can recommend to her, that you know of. she is not a raw beginner, but she is probably book learned only and more of a solitary and rusty at that. she is a friend of mine from second life. i have known her about a year and from what i know she seems to be a good person.

    i ma just looking for a good/safe place for her to start dipping her toes in the water.

    well.. hello again....
    yes i am back, windows 8 sucks rocks but i am slowly finding my way around it. i wish i was "more" computer literate than i am, but i am "learning" sl-o-o-o-wly.. i can almost "understand" "tiles and charms".

    ie, i have figured out how to remove programs i don't like or understand, such as x-box music. and a few others. i have also figured out how to "install" programs. i-tunes, firefox and skype. not tried to install my copy of office this yet. but i have figured out where at least one of the "help" menu's are..

    ACTA in a Nutshell –

    What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

    Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

    What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

    Essential ACTA Resources

    • Read more about ACTA here: ACTA Fact Sheet
    • Read the authentic version of the ACTA text as of 15 April 2011, as finalized by participating countries here: ACTA Finalized Text
    • Follow the history of the treaty’s formation here: ACTA history
    • Read letters from U.S. Senator Ron Wyden wherein he challenges the constitutionality of ACTA: Letter 1 | Letter 2 | Read the Administration’s Response to Wyden’s First Letter here: Response
    • Watch a short informative video on ACTA: ACTA Video
    • Watch a lulzy video on ACTA: Lulzy Video

    Say NO to ACTA. It is essential to spread awareness and get the word out on ACTA.

    kate has had a good day
    copied from rimbles fb page

    to those who are receiveing multiple messages profuse appologies.. but WE HAVE A
    DIAGNOSIS. oh yaaaaym

    At 9am they increased the Oxygen level and turned off the regulated breathing
    part of the ventilator. She is still intubated and sedated but she spent most
    of the day breathing on her own with little help. They are going to turn the
    assisted breathing back on so she can get some rest from all that exercise she
    did today. The night nurse is a boy, and a slight flame, which we joked about.
    made her smile. She has a picture of John Barrowman looking over her.

    She had H1N1 and the course of antibiotics is through so they have opened her
    room up and we no longer have to wear masks. I got to kiss my wife on the hand
    and forehead for the first time in a week.

    I have asked the nurse to let me know when they are going to remove the tubes
    so I can be there for her. it will make the transition much better if I am
    there. She has been reminded a few times now that if she rips the tubes out
    she may also rip her vocal cords with it and no more singing. I think that got
    through to her. I was able to get her hands untied for a little while so she
    could move around a little more.

    Communication with big things is still not very easy. reading lips with a tube
    in the way is very difficult.

    Anyway, she is doing much better and I am looking forward to being able to talk
    to her again and have her be there mentally.

    Thank you for your prayers and support
