Re: Daf's Medellin adventures
- Dear Webheads--
I got a sneak preview earlier this week of Jean
Michel's lovely gift to Dafne---Sus Nyrop had a screen
shot of it on her desktop, and while we were
application-sharing in Learning Times (in preparation
for another Webheads collaboration, a set of online
presentations for the Minsk IATEFL Conference), she
showed the stamp collage to me, Aiden, and Sergei.
It is such a lovely thing to have done, JM, and
full of the meaning of global communication. What a
We are waiting with bated breath to see how the
conference goes, Daf--keep up the good work and say hi
to Tom and Susan G. for me!
PS: thanks, everyone, for the birthday greetings--I've
been celebrating all week! In just 7 months I can
collect Social Security!

Dear JM, Sus and all,
I have no words to describe my feelings when, just
about to have lunch
with all the presenters and conference organizers, I
was announced that
the French vice-consul in Bucaramanga, Colombia had
sent a message and
wanted to talk to me. It is not the first time that JM
presents, with his relatives and even his daughter
while I was in VAlencia.
But this time it was different. I am in his country,
and this present,
when I am about to give a plenary session for 450
surrounded by re-known experts in CALL, was like
having all webheads backing me
up, and JM making me feel at home.
But I had not seen the present yet. I opened it after
my phone talk
with JM. I could not believe what I was seeing and
tears came to my eyes.
Thanks from the bottom of my heart :-)
