I'll be going north to Chico, California for a few days for my mother's 90th birthday party. Just the family and about 200 close friends. Back Sunday. My mother promises that she'll take the time to play a set or two of tennis with me, but only if I follow her new rule: "After my birthday, I get two bounces."

It she's anything like my mother in Redding, she'll not only ask for two bounces, she'll cheat, too. Have fun!

Mr. Van der Leun,
Upon your return, would you please see if something can possibly be done with your 50 Reasons page? I highly awated being able to read the comments on it after the election, but found it to be copying over itself and virtually unreadable. It's warming to know that America seems to be gaining a conscience once again; something that both my parents ingrained deeply within me while they were busy raising their family. Thank you for yours (conscience), for your fairness, and your inner strength to speak your mind.
