Zelma's grandson needs a favor....

Vilafonte friends, a favor is requested of you. My grandson, Michael Freese of Calistoga, (Napa Valley) California, is in the midst of a "post card" competition in his 5th grade class.  The competition is to receive post cards mailed from around the U.S. and the world. Those getting (a) the most post cards; (b) post cards whose sum total reflects the farthest distance; will win a prize. The contest ends mid May.

This, of course, is a great way to learn geography. Michael is using Google Earth to figure out how many direct miles each postcard represents. He would be thrilled to have you contribute by mailing him a post card (and I would be most appreciative). Here is what to do:

1.  Select a post card and address it to:
                   Michael Freese
                   2103 Table Rock
                   Calistoga, California  94515
                   USA
2.  Write at the bottom of the post card "Wet velociraptors make good pets".   (verification code for the project)
3.  Write him a brief note, and sign.  Be sure the origin of the post card is clear.

Thanks!  You will make a young boy happy, and grow his knowledge of the big world out there.
