No this is not really me... just my sister-in-law filling in from France (yes indeed)just to say the Buettners and co. made it through just fine. They said to say they also heard from the Eagers as well[/s]. No news re the rest.

The French Buettner (moi): took awhile to figure this out but I did it! Funny how I could call and chat all the way from France...with that thing not far overhead. What a sanity-saver this message board was/is! I'm impressed...
