Actually, I am joking. Neil is keeping tabs on himself for me using that Twitter thingy. He and Nolene are traveling these days in South America. So Neil is sending out messages via Twitter so that he can keep in touch. I guess it's kind of cool and sure saves on the phone bill. I am saving the messages ... here they are in their raw form:
