    Hi Winifred. Thanks for the update and information that you keep sending us. After the APJP KL Workshop I have tried to revive the APJPNETWORK BLOG. I am doing it successfully but I still need to learn much from the technology. I have put your blog site in the blogroll. In this way we can get connected. When I am done soon I will share this blog site with the APJP Network. Blessings!
