It was a great and happy surprise to be sitting here in Sydneytown and see my sister-in-law (via a marriage or 2), Carol Yelverton, come across the news screen (OK, it was Fox: what of it?) from the US. She's a Boston based media presenter pro and has, over the last few years, been involved with various social service organisations. Now a PR type with Red Cross, she has been busy throughout the hurricane areas this last year. (See, e.g., http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2005/09/22/earlyshow/main878886.shtml and http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2005-08-31-katrina-donations_x.htm.) Her proud Poppa can show you a good time; click the "good time" link in my link collection.
