Hi Michele,

It was great to see you and meet your family last week in Homer. Hope your trip to AK was a memorable one.

Cheers,

Hi Michele

 

I saw your name and thought I'd pop by and say hello. It's a small world the Internet, really!

 

I run the International and Scotland Groups here which is one way of sharing any interesting news or information with people from around the world. Please do join up. The Natural Teachers group is also pretty active.

 

Best wishes

Juliet

Hi Michele! Great to see you here. Glad you joined in! You'll probably want to connect with our Natural Families Network, among other groups here. I sent you an e-mail about your blog RSS feed. We'll get that straightened out and get you on the BlogNet. Looking forward to many more connections and ways of staying in touch. Cheers!

"Janice and Harmony -- Okay, so 10-20 is what consistently happens at my nature club.  But it's nice that you have a forum for suggesting outings that people can take on their own. Thanks for describing "how" you both do it in…"
