      Thanks. That would be great. I am looking forward to be able to write
      baby sentences communicating in Pali.

      Thanks for those Pali chanting links (to the people who provided them).
      Now I got something to listen to on my iPod. Was listening to Bhiikkhu
      Bodhi's readings of the passages in Gair et al, but these passages are
      very long, and not easily remembered like chanted passages are.

      Sincerely
      Jon Fernquest
