I have never sent files to the present list that do not pertain strictly to SignWriting.
Yet, this is Valerie's birthday.
So, I decided to send a brief Powerpoint Presentation I have just received that shows my city, São Paulo, in Brazil, just for the sake of getting to know each other better.
Many people ask me what Sao Paulo, with its 11 million inhabitants, looks like (with its great and not that great sides...). So, for those of you who may be curious, and have some 2 min to spare, go ahead and have a look. For the renaining ones, please, just ignore or delete (- ha!). No harm meant... ;-)

I'd like to add my voice and my signing to the choir that, united, congratulate our dear and inspiring friend, Valerie Sutton, for her birthday:
Happy birthday, sweet Valerie!!! Many God pour unto you many, many blessings always and always!
Over the last years, you have been a true blessing that God has generously bestowed upon us.
I praise God for your precious life! Your inspirational spirit and caring messages have kept us working over all these years. Your life has touched millions of deaf children's lives all around this blue planet of ours! Keep up the superb work! Thank you for your constant generosity and caring. We count on you, at least till 2050, when we plan to enjoy a happy retirement! ;-)
All the best, now and always,
