Editor's Comment: Of note, this is the first time (ever) that the US Embassy has notified me of anything, well at least in recent memory, anyway. Apparently my campaign to hold my breath until I turned blue worked. So therefore, my boycott is officially and hereby ended. Guys, I will be more than happy to spread the word about anything - all you have to do is let me know. I'll be at the Veteran's Day ceremony (at least), I always cover that. And the event with Dr. Goodall sounds like fun.
