As noted earlier, the books I sent via snail mail in January were never 
delivered.  No word from the island since mid May, but the e-mail address 
should still work.  He did previously request that I not forward every 
e-mail message he was sending, so please exercise some political finnesse.

Still have some hope for a hand carry air delivery from Gander, 
Newfoundland, even though Cubanna air flights there have dropped to a 
trickle.  Some concern about slow shipping USA to Canada, possible customs 
problems, and multiple relays could be a problem.  Had one offer to hand 
carry from Detroit to Windsor and ship within Canada, but that leaves a lot 
of relaying.

I haven't made the connection yet, but supposedly there is a fellow who is 
a member of our local MG club, west of Chicago, who occasionally flies a 
corporate jet from here to Gander on business.  It would be nice to drop 
off a package locally here, have it do one hop to Gander and one hop to 
Havanna, all hand tended amoung friends and acquaintances.  So far no 
response from local e-mail, but still working on it.  If I can make this 
connection, it would be time it start collecting.

I will keep on the project and keep you informed.
