Nope, no babies here. Some sleepy cats ... but no babies. Whew!

I'm remembering having one of these Ham Radio Transmitters when I was a kid

I've built Heath and homebrew kits/rigs my entire life. My most recent, a few years back was an Elecraft K2 - http://www.elecraft.com/k2_page.htm

In a lot of ways electronics was a lot more fun before the advent of microchips. I've built a few things myself, and my father was constantly building things he'd read the plans for in Popular Mechanics or Popular Science, including a "big ear" that allowed us to spy on conversations a block away and a working theremin.

My bad! It was a Heathkit transmitter that I built. Bought the Hallicrafters receiver! 50 years can sure mess with my memory!

Another 45 minutes and it's back into the water for another night dive. Last dive for this assignment. Tomorrow I have to hang around until later in the eve before I can fly out. 24-hour no-fly rule.

Things are looking up for my journey to Ethiopia.
And although I would like a month I now have the option of a 18-day (more expensive) or a 23-day (with 3 days in a tent and cheaper).
The 23-day will not visit Axum http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axum which is a pity as it is an historical important town.
The 18-day will visit some prehistoric sites as well, which I would like to see. There are two inland flights included.
Both don't visit the Islamic town of Harar.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harar

And I just hope my mother.i.l (95) will be out of her plaster/ cast before I leave, and doing well.....one never knows at that age.

The 18 day trip sounds best - is it that much more expensive? Best wishes to the MIL - at 95 a fall like that would put most completely out of action (it did for my grandmother at 85) - must be a tough old bird.

Well, what irks me is that both trips would be a compromise, as both don't go to Harar, which I really want to see. And it costs too much money for it to be a compromise.

I'm also looking if I can't go to Turkmenistan, of which I saw little last year, Uzbekistan(which I know and is beautiful), followed by Tajikistan (which I don't know).

Yes, my mother-i.l. is strong, but at that age the bones are as fragile as egg-shells.

Planning a day trip to Antwerp with my sister for next week. We are both suffering from post-holiday blues and need a nice day out.
