Three years ago or so, I came across a book on SAMAR published by Sideslakes Press with email address: <> which incidentally is no longer in use. I wonder if anyone of you knows the author and the publisher of this book (whose complete title I can not remember), and if you do, would appreciate it if you can forward this email so that we can order more cps.

Likewise, if anyone of you reading this email knows of any book title or films/videos about SAMAR, do let me know. Pls send replies to <>. Many thanks and All the Best for 2007 to everyone !

May the New Year 2007 be joyful, fruitful, and hopeful, without malice aforethought to anyone or anything but only celebratory attitude towards our existence and not gloomy attentiveness towards the tragic possibilities of life. Faith offers temporary relief to our outlook in life, negative or positive it maybe, but the New Year brings new you and new me.

Peace. Live long and prosper. Prospero ano y felicidad.
