    Andrea,

    I saw your post on my blog about Second Life and decided to check it out some more. It definitely looks interesting and I could see how it would be a great tool even though its still a bit nebulous to me at this point. I’m afraid since I don’t have enough time in my first life, its going to take me a while to figure it out.

    • Aw, shucks, that whole “only 24 hours in a day” thing seems to keep comin’ up.
      I understand – I will let you know when I see a particularly exciting event. MAYBE you can come if it is a defined amount of time at a convenient time of day.

      Thanks for the communication.

      Andrea Hildreth
