Too bad that with just my SS I won't be able to get a place. Hopefully this work I am doing does well and I can keep it up next year after my trip. I want to be in Bellingham by 2008 (oh my hog that is far away...).
I honestly don't know if the gems are going to be cheaper in the places they are mined. I doubt it, but I know they sometimes have really cool sales... at least they did at a diamond place in Amsterdam.
There is a petition to get Will & Janelle on TAR. When I signed it a day or two ago, there were almost three thousand sigs. Nice.
Next summer is going to be SO expensive. :o/
