This is great news for Dr Yunus (of course) and Grameen Bank and a very, very proud moment for all Bangladeshis all over the world.

Not sure why or if it has any significant meaning, but almost everynight I have multiple dreams. Most of them are fairly regular steff. Me going to work or talking to someone.

But sometimes the dream is so weird that it makes no sense.

Sensible or not, I am used to

    I have no idea what he is saying but the tune and the music is simply wonderful.

    I believe he is from Angola but has been living in Paris France for sometime. I heard of him on "The World" on NPR the other day.

    For the first time, I saw an add in the paper for a product, thought it was a good deal (almost a great deal), went to the store, found the item (usually they run of the items the advertise) and was able to buy it.

    The product - an external hard drive (Maxtor 300 Gb, USB 2.0 and FireWire), the store - Fry's (Austin, TX), the price - $189 ($202 w/tax).

    Now, I just need to take it out of the box, hook it up and copy off from the other external drive (before it goes out).
