Thanks for the history lessons. It made for great reading. I love history. Oh and one more thing. I love your national anthem. I think it is one of the prettiest ones going. Every time I watch the Olympics, I keep hoping Canada wins first place if we can't so I can hear it.

I wear a medium. I was "swmming" in the jacket, but I did find a medium on the rack...also finally found a pair of medium pants...yesterday the sous chef told me to go to the chef de partis (sp) to order some uniforms that fit me (I felt as if I was playing dress up in my Dad's clothes when I was a child). Turns out when the chef de partis checked to see what size I was wearing, I was wearing the sous chef's' pants...talk about being in s/one else's pants! The poor guy wondered what happened to his uniforms...he has since moved them to his locker, but, since the uniforms ordered for me won't be in for awhile, I still have his pants! One of the other chefs suggested I wear a bikini to work--NOT!!! If he weren't gay, I'd take that as sexual harassment.
This made me snort water all over!

One of my friends Jayeeta four fresh 'kagji lebu' (a type of scented lime) , which is very rare in this time of the year, from their own garden.
