      Hi Randy,
      I read your column every week and always look forward to it! I wanted to comment on this weeks piece. My first cousin, Cathy Ziengs, lives in Hong Kong. She is a former New Yorker who married an international Dutch banker and therefore has lived all over the world. She has studied and read Buddhism for years. She comes to the states about once a year to see family in MS and New York. This summer she spent a week or two at magnolia grove. I thought your article was very interesting and much of what Cathy talks about quite often. I would love for you to know her. She is extremely bright and lots of fun! So, I guess I am also saying that you could add to your article that there was a car tag from Hong Kong! Ha!! I am sure she had a American rental car. Anyway, would love to hear from you. I hope you and Jeannie are doing well. Oxford … Was a great place to live
      Peace,
      Shirley
