I'm interested and willing to collaborate with you on Civil Wars. I'm from Mindanao, Philippines. Civil War is going on here for more than 30 years with almost 1 million dead and counting, but the government refuses to accept that there is civil war.

Based on the comments below, we can allow our students to interact and perhaps interact with you online.

Hi George,
Thanks for your effort to help my students down in Taguatinga-DF-Brazil to interact with yours.
I hope that next time we can have the suitable equipment to get interaction to happen properly.

Hi George!
LOL, my husband also gets along great with my parents. Chicken Adobo is chicken that's been boiled in garlic, soy sauce, vinegar and bay leaf. It's great with white rice. One of my favorites.
Thanks for reminding me about the fight - my husband really wants to see it!
My husband is Jewish - it's so interesting to learn about another culture. My son is going to get the best of both worlds.
My company offers a lot of Professional Development as well as computer needs. Let me know if you're interested in staff development!
