Thursday nights I teach an intermediate level class at a company called Edison which makes optical sensors and other light-related electronics. Here’s me and the class clowning around for the camera. In order from left to right they are: (Back) Roger, Lewis, Vila, Serena, Me, Maggie and Alan. (Front) Jeff, Jay, “Smiling” Sammy (I have never seen her not smile) and Rita. Posted by Picasa

Terrance (seen the background reading sagely), Chris, and I are not alone in our struggle to bring proper English grammar to the corporate masses of Taipei!

The ancient Greeks believed their lives were ruled by three women who wove human existance and destiny. In the ESP department, there are also 3 women who weave destiny, their names are Sharon, Sandy, and this last, youngest, and cutest fate: Crystal! Cheerful bespeckled Crystal is usually the one who accompanies us on our first trips to various companies and keeps our lazy butts in line. Posted by Picasa


This is a nice modern bank building sitting next to the thin appartment building in the core of the city, done in the old style and set up to look like it’s made of white marble. Very stylish. Posted by Picasa
