Shabbat Shalom

Running very late today as I went to a concert this afternoon for the new Vanadzor Technology Center. This is a government and industry project to develop entrepreneurs and create a magnet so as to keep more Armenians here instead of them emigrating to other countries. Emigration is a major problem, as is finding entrepreneurial resources, hopefully this new center will help with both issues. I am hoping that Olag and I will be able to teach some classes in business English there also, but nothing definite yet..

The concert was very cool, and thank heavens it was outside because it was heavy metal and the last time I heard them it was in a small club and the noise was deafening – I lasted 15 minutes. Today I heard the whole set including the song I helped write with them called Critical Song, which is all about the need for more critical thinking.

Everything else is good as I can certainly feel that I am moving into the home stretch. I am even trying to see if I can be home for the High Holidays – I hope – I hope – I hope.

Shabbat Shalom
