      Thanks for the info. I'm not in southern California anymore. I'm teaching
      middle school Social Studies in Crownpoint, NM, on the eastern edge of the
      Big (Navajo) Rez. I somehow doubt there'd be much interest out here. :-)

        Hi David:

        I'm working thu a backlog that piled up during an
        incommunicado spell my computer suffered. I sent
        a short E-mail to J. Kriss as soon as I got back
        online, shared my bit of data, same as yours

        For all of you who don't know, Glen has a WEBSITE!
        It's called "Inklings Focus" and his first completed
        section is all about foreign language translations of
        Narnia. Drop in, drop him a line.
