Beauty,
My wife, Zenia, and I want to thank you and Ron (and your sister and nephew) for the wonderful tour. We learned much and I plan to use what I have learned when I teach in the clasroom. I may also continue researching this issue and try to publish something in an academic journal, so if you know of any articles that I might read to learn more I would appreciate knowing about them so I can obtain a copy. I will be sure to cite and credit the author(s) in any article I write. For example, it would good to read the article you and Brian (Bryan?) wrote a couple of years ago.

Thanks again, and hopefully we will meet again,
Curtis Wood
