That... was a little bit different kind of a read from normal. Perhaps... maybe it's a very limited "cultural" thing somewhere? Based on an inbox that receives many things, particularly including news, from around the World, I could see that *maybe* occurring... in a very limited capacity... somewhere. I've been on a couple listservs geared solely toward female techs... #1) Free travel has never not once been a topic of conversation.. Not once never. #2) Those lists have notoriously been pretty darn quiet all these years... to the point that I often forget I'm a member.... Because my fellow(ette) female list members are too busy mixing it up elsewhere all around the Net in more globally focused mainstream circles. And still when I encounter their work out there all around and about the entire of the entire W-W-W, never not once... have the words... free travel... bubble type burped to the crest of trending conversations. Uh-uh. Nope. Not once never. Just thinking out loud.... :) Cindy :) -- Cindy-Sue Causey Talking Rock, Pickens County, Georgia, USA * runs with duct tape *
