Danish Meeting Day

We are sitting in the Danish Club in downtown Calgary, waiting for the annual meetings to begin. In the background is a Danish folksong playing,flags everywhere, plates and oil paintings on the walls,and registration is taking place,sipping coffee, and gossiping as people catch up on their news from all over the country.It is warm and cosy inside, raining outside, but tomorrow sun is forecast.We have just delivered a watercolor to be auctioned off in aid of the Danish Canadian National Museum at this evening's gala dinner in "The Tivoli Room" This iPad is very clever. It knows where it is, the address, even the postal code for where I am sitting!

And it can talk to me thousands of miles away! I am enjoying following your trip - hope the meetings are worthwhile and pleasurable.
