    Ah yes, weekend mode while working. It should be illegal. Child abuse, or something like that.

    I have the happiest memories of Lebanon from my two visits there. I'm certainly coming back - and bringing others with me as I did last time. Such a beautiful country - but Lebanon has the heart of the phoenix. leyle

    Maysa, my thoughts are with you and your beautiful country. I visited Lebanon in 1995 still with traces of the war. I admired the energy of the people I felt in rebuilding the country. It´s a shame what happens now. Be safe and strong !
