Wonderful: looking forward to seeing you there!

In the meantime--here's an article to bring the issue into perspective.

Jordan Yields Poverty and Pain for the Well-Off Fleeing Iraq

Quote:
AMMAN, Jordan, Aug. 9 After her husband's killing, Amira sold a generation of her family's belongings, packed up her children and left behind their large house in Baghdad, with its gardener and maid.

Now, a year later, she is making meat fritters for money in this sand-colored capital, unable to afford glasses for her son, and in the quiet moments, choking on the bitterness of loss.

The war has scattered hundreds of thousands of Iraqis throughout the Middle East, but those who came here tended to be the most affluent. Most lacked residency status and were not allowed to work, but as former bank managers, social club directors and business owners, they thought their money would last.

Cool Updates

Updates: There will be a "mystey Sensei" dropping in on the Seminar. Hint: he was a student of O Sensei's.

If I hadn't mentioned it earlier: all attendee's get a year's membership to Aiki-Extensions, Inc, as part of their donation/Seminar fee.

Now, how cool is that?

PS Don't forget to bring along a bag lunch.
