BIG NEWS!!

Okay everybody, if you haven't heard yet, here's a real bombshell: Lara and I have decided to stay another year.

I know, I know, crazy right? Another year. It was hard to decide. I think I might have given myself an ulcer in the two weeks between them asking us and actually saying yes. Truth be told, I get more excited about our extension with every passing day. Lara has a fantastic project that she'll be working on, and I'll continue working and learning with the computers we use. It's going to be great for both of us.

More great news: our moms are coming to visit! We've booked a safari/tour through South Africa in late May and early June. Peggy's cousin Leslie and her son Dag are coming as well. We promise to put up lots of pictures of, you know, elephants and stuff.

Speaking of pictures, take a look at the new Flickr widget to the right. You can click on it and you'll be whisked away to our Flickr page, which has lots more pictures than we've put on this site.

And last but not least, I've got a gig on Friday! Our friend Silverio is introducing me to a band here called Saldicos. They put out at least one record, but have since more or less disbanded with members moving to Maputo and Europe. The guitarist and drummer have remained behind, and I'm playing with them on Friday night. We're supposed to get together at least once this week to rehearse, but whether or not we do it will still be a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants kind of show.

(Note to the Nashville IGH office: Katie has the Saldicos record, but I don't know if it's properly labeled. It's 17 tracks long, and the first track is called "Zambezia". The chorus starts "Essa terra mãe, essa terra jovem".

How wonderful!!! I think that you guys are getting "attached at the hip to Africa" and who wouldn't. I wish you well in all your new endeavors!
Take care

Kevin - The flickr widget seems to have broken your mainpage layout and individual story layout in FF2 (on linux at least). I've submitted mozanblog to browsershots...you're in the queue: http://browsershots.org/requests/673146/
