      Chlopecka-Vande Sande, Anna Kotowska,
      Krzysztof Michejda, Zbigniew Okreglak and the
      best dancing couple among Polish diplomats in

      Did you know that Friends of the Polish
      Library in Washington, D.C., Inc. (known in
      Polish as Towarzystwo Przyjaciol Biblioteki
      Polskiej) has a namesake in Stockholm?

      The Swedish organization is mentioned on the
      new Polska.se Web site.



      Click on Organizacje and then on
      Towarzystwa/Stowarzyszenia and then on
      Towarzystwa Przyjaciol to see a note about
      the Polish library in Sweden.

      NEW EMAIL FACILITY: Yahoo! Groups

      For about a year and a half, I have called my

      "Polish News / Washington D.C. and the
      Global Village,"

      but since then "Polish Suburban News," a
      beautiful Chicago-grown Polonian publication,
      has renamed itself to "Polish News" and even
      reserved its domain name as


      Since I don't want my newsletter to be
      confused with the Chicago-based "Polish News"
      monthly and its Web site, I've decided to
      rename my newsletter to

      "Polish Global Village."

      Despite its universal title, my newsletter
      will continue to focus almost exclusively on
      Poland-related events and issues in the
      Washington metropolitan area.

      I have written a few words about my newsletter,
      sort of an ad hoc program, at


      so if you have time, please check it out.

      As everything on the Web, my description of
      my newsletter is not itched in stone and is
      bound to change as I think it over.

      Another change involves the way I'll send out
      my email newsletters.

      I'm going to transfer my entire email address
      list (more than 300 addresses) to the
      eGroups.com server, which was recently
      purchased by Yahoo!

      I've prepared my new eGroups-based newsletter
      page at


      More about that later.
