Oh Wonderful Web 

Ah, what a great time in which to live. Last night I was able to gaze upon a picture of the ship that brought my grandmother to these United States. I am so thankful for the Ellis Island website for putting the picture and Grandma's immigration info on the web. I'm thankful to Adobe Systems for inventing the PDF format which changed our workflows so I have periods of time when my computer is working and I'm waiting. And I thank Apple Computer for finally bringing multitasking to their OS so I can surf the web whilst my computer is chomping data. (Of course, living in these times also means I can probably look forward to e-mails asking me to donate to some Ellis Island fund, but that's another post.) ;-)
