***Happy Ester!!***

As we had many problems with our computer when Window 11 was introduced, most of my work was halted. Last year, we achieved our goal of visiting 75 countries

before we become 75 years old, so we have so many photos to show you.Unfortunately, we continue to have problems uploading photos. Once we have a solution,

we will resume uploading more photos. . 


Meanwhile, our talented granddaughter Mira agreed to rewrite "A Woman's Tale" in English for me. So Chap 1 is now reloaded.

Hope you enjoy her version of the story.
