Mssr. Glassford:
How many of the aforementioned calendars might you folks be
needing, so as I can git with B&amp;A and package 'em up in David's
ballast bags for his trip down there. Let us know asap.... here and

help support our work with Mexico, I can finally say that it is done
and will be arriving here shortly.  So what that means is that we
can take orders and ship as soon as they arrive - which should be any
day.  From a very subjective point of view, we would like to say
that the calendars are beautiful and can also make great Christmas
presents.  We have plenty to sell or should I say that we need to
sell, so order all you want and more.</font></blockquote>

<blockquote type="cite" cite><font face="Times New Roman" size="+2">It
was inspired by a project this summer where we brought together a
group of kids from Obregon with others from the States and had them
build a playhouse here at our site in southeastern Arizona. 
Choice of location was determined by the overwhelming desire of the
Mexican group to escape the fierce heat of the Sonoran desert. 
Let's call it a vacation of sorts.  The materials were basically
natural except for the plastic sandbags and the majority were gathered
either on site or nearby.  All of the children who were involved
have been closely tied to us over the past 8 years and in one way or
another been involved in the ongoing work there.  Sometimes as
spectators and on other occasions they have had their hands directly
involved in the mud and straw.  This playhouse was their chance
to do it largely by themselves and hopefully carry what they have
learned into the future.  Don't be fooled because they are just
kids, they flat out know how to build better than lots of adults. 
We hope you enjoy them as much as we have.</font></blockquote>
