Subject:     Newsletter Format, SAA, and Adventure

 

Dear SHAKSPER Subscribers:

 

NEWSLETTER FORMAT:

 

I am going to try something different with the format of the daily newsletters. 

 

The latest format for the newsletter is to begin with a heading that includes abbreviated forms of the individual posts or threads in that newsletter.

 

Then I have something like a table of contents that includes the headings of the postings, followed by the individual postings or the discussion threads with various links to web site versions.

 

With this newsletter, I am going to change the format of the table of contents sections to give subscribers a visually more pleasing and informative organization. 

 

I am going to organize the table of contents information into larger groups that follow the arrangement of the digest/newsletter and an abbreviation of the heading to include the submitters name followed by the subject of the submission.

 

I think these changes will make browsing through the newsletters easier and more appealing visually. Let me know what you think of the changes.

 

 

SAA:

 

I enjoyed myself thoroughly at the SAA. The content of the presentations I attended was stimulating and informative, but what was most stimulating was catching up with so many friends and spending time with them. 

 

 

ADVENTURE:

 

My time in Toronto did not end with the conference.

 

When I started packing on Sunday, I realized that I did not have my passport. I finally figured that I must have lost it at the airport as I was going through customs. 

 

The problem was that it was a holiday weekend in Canada. The person who enters the passports turned in at the airport was off and the US Consulate in Toronto was closed until Tuesday.

 

I was not expecting the extra expensive of two additional nights at the hotel, airfare, food, and so on, but I was not overly stressed. On Tuesday, I got to the Consulate and was issued an emergency passport to get home and I arrived at home late in the evening at 1:30 am.

 

Despite the obstacles, I had an enjoyable time and spent yesterday with my two dogs and cockatoo. 

 

Hardy
