    ... two little angles. By the time I was done, Allison and Anthony already finished making the favor bags. To cut a long story short, we W O N !!!!!!! I am still waiting for the prize - by the way.....

    We then went to go meet the economist at 5:00. I honestly thought that Jack got lost and stopped to ask for directions when Andrew reminded me that we had a business visit. They had a nice feast set-up for us. I really enjoyed the discussions and ...
