Hey Noadman. Thanks for the welcome. I had this fleeting idea that I could learn a bit of French, but if I am honest, I am having a hard enough time learning to read music, maintaining my household PC's, learning the Mac OS (cause I just switched), getting up to speed with Sibelius, relating to my teenage kids, walking my dogs, maintaining my website, staying in touch with my students and...and.... that I am not sure I could handle much more input
On another forum I belong to, a very nice anonymous person from somewhere in France offered to do any translation to english I wanted. I might have to settle for using the Translation Widget on my mac and asking for confirmation from my French connection for now.
Oh, I lived in Vancouver for 10 years, but totally regret never being able to travel east and see some more of your country. Maybe one day.
