Y and N,
Sounds great and looking forward potentially to Scottish dancing together. Curious to explore, too, how to generate bliss in new ways via SCD (Scottish Country Dance aka RSCDS) which I think can be a kind of 'technology for bliss' ... but first to dancing it ... you probably already know the 'pas de basque' step -
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gTQUfVWlQA - and - http://www.rscds.org/help/technique-panel-general/48-pas-de-basque.html (which I'll look to add to WUaS's SCD page - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Scottish_Country_Dancing) - but it's good to get it into one's body with dancing. (And D is a very good teacher, if he's teaching in January).
It was very nice to hang out with you this weekend as well!
Thanks for your kind invitation for a meal. I'm afraid we can't fit it in right now.
Can we meet sometime after we get back? Fun won't be living with us at that time, but will be close by, and we could certainly bring her over for a meal some evening.
Looking forward to doing Strip the Willow!

Hi Y and N,
Looking forward to talking Thai MIT OCW - http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/translated-courses/thai/ - not in Thai with you and Fun over dinner in Canyon upon your return from Thailand in January. You, C, Fun and Jo may have a very interesting conversation. How many science courses in Thai are there here in this MIT OCW?
And looking forward, too, to Scottish Country Dancing dancing together on Friday evenings.
I've posted below some further Scottish Country Dancing steps, all accessible here at WUaS - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Scottish_Country_Dancing. :)
Just found this 'Scottish Country Dancing Chennai "Strip the Willow" on March 30 2009' in India youtube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwlrIsT3l8U - and here's another Scottish Ceilidh 'The Scottish Fiddle Orchestra - Strip the Willow' - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBCayM6aFJQ - clothed. :)

Hi C, J and F (my Thai speaking friends!!! :),
Here are the beginnings of an online, wiki, C.C. MIT OCW-centric Thai World University and School in Thai language (only a little bit in Thai so far thanks to MIT OCW) ...
Thai language: http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Thai_language
Thailand: http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Thailand (I just began this page this morning)
These are accessible from Languages and Nation States at WUaS ...
Nation States: http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Nation_States
Below are some main pages at WUaS, all of which will find their way into Thai, but also including an online Medical School, Hospital (http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Medicine#World_University_and_School_Links) and much more.
Let's talk further about this over time, perhaps checking out MIT OCW in Thai - http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/translated-courses/thai - upon your return, C!
Best wishes and cheers,
