We will not produce the #EPT10  video this week, due to lack of internet service in +Gerda Prato-Espejo's area. We will be back as soon as services are restored fully.

Gerda's area was hit hard by Hurricane #Sandy , but she and her husband are well. They got through it on lots of ice cream :)

To our friends around the world, thank you for your support! We have a short "Hello!" in the Halloween Greeting video below. Enjoy!
