Le teolai beannu,
(Apologies to the Irish and/or Gaelic linguists out there for the crude
attempt to open "With warm greetings" as a result of the 'limited'
English/Irish -- Irish/English dictionary I bought a week ago at the Irish
Fest in Ft. Lauderdale)
With that said... for me one of the most intriguing aspects of the
Internet is the ability to establish long-distance friendships not only
around this country (USA) but also around the world. The CELTIC-L is a
perfect doorway to the world -- and an equally attractive reflection of
people who share an interest in one particular corner of the world (a most
charming, warm and geen corner, I might add).
Bouquets aside, I would like to try an experiment with that doorway. For
the sake of verbal creativity, I'm calling the experiment "WORLD-GEOGRAPHY
Basically, I'm interested where other people on this CELTIC-L are living
(countries and cities) -- and how many of us there are. I am also interested
in what you do for a living, you know, for work -- unless it involves
government/national security, drug deals or midnight lovers. (I promise to
be impressed if it involves BRAVE HEART, ROB ROY or anything associated with
reviewing movies or films.)
I've been able to pinpoint several people from information provided on
their letters, but there must be many more out there who have either never
written themselves or haven't given any geographic location in their letters.
AMERICA ON-LINE subscribers can provide a member profile (and many of you
do), so I have found some locales that way. But many people on the CELTIC-L
come by an Internet connection other than AOL, and I can't even try to find a
location for you! That's definitely the most intriguing path through the
doorway for me.
So, my friends, let's play tag.
My name, e-mail address, areas of occupation and locale are:

P.S. Does anyone know how to request a confirmation copy of this letter, so
I will know that it dispatched successfully, AND how to cut out the headers
on the letters I receive?
