Good news! Persa is home. You can get some of the story here--http://www.zulas.com/persa.htm
Nice to have some happy news in time for the holidays. Good luck to her and her family. I expect their work has just begun.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Happy Kwanzah, etc, to all. The holidays came up fast this year but having made cookies with mom, listened to hours of Xmas music, and gotten my shopping done, I'm starting to feel seasonal finally. Good luck to all. Enjoy yourselves, your gifts, your friends, and most of all your family. They might drive you crazy, but be glad you have them, safe and sound.
