<Karen Leonard> Lynn, Yes, Georgia in the US

<Karen Leonard> I am in circle 41 with Orit from Israel and Elena from

   Cananda

<Janet > How funny, I automatically thought Georgia in Europe

<<karen> And Karen is in a circle with Elena from Montreal, where I grew

   up..small world eh?

<<Karen Leonard> Marsha, where in Israel are you from? We think about you

   all over there a lot when we hear the news.

</<<karen> ok..Lynn would you like to begin?

<<karen> Lynn would you like to begin by telling us about the book?

<Lynn Manning Ross> The book is titled Word Kids Cook Out.

<<Lynn Manning Ross> I want to capture 50+ countries via

   something we all have in common-holidays/celebrations and eating

<Lynn Manning Ross> I also created a Teacher's Activity Plan and a chart

   for conversions

<Lynn Manning Ross> One of your teachers F/F Karrie Dietz/Uzbekistan posted a

   success story about the project

<Marsha Goren> Sounds great! When do you think it will be published? I am

   excited !

<karen> Karrie is the teacher from Uzbekistan going to Rome with 3 kids like

   Marsha

<Lynn Manning Ross> It is a long process. Book like any product are

   developed about 18 month ahead of release

I envision the book also being a fund raiser

)It would be 'cool' if it could also continue to be a living document...via web

< Lynn Manning Ross> At one point in the future I will do a nonprofit (Yes And create a competition whereby teachers can profit

karen> Once its released I could promote it for you  on F&

<Karen Leonard> so you have put all of the information together and are just

   now waiting for publication or is this still an ongoing process
