      I find it very interesting how the real world and the virtual one blend in these ways - It can definitely deepen understanding and appreciation.

      It's something I'm still getting used to Paul. Old habits. Very convenient though. A church I visited in Georgia had a huge online network of a variety of activities one could get involved with. I found it to be pretty amazing. Thanks for the reminder.
