Hello CIDU friends. This is Robin, Bill’s wife. (I guess widow now).
Although I posted something a couple of months ago, I was afraid that some of us may have missed it, so with Winter Wallaby’s kind help, I am writing this.
First I want to say thank you. CIDU started because Bill thought it was funny but it grew into something much bigger – a place where people could come together and discuss issues in a safe space. My husband loved learning things and as a result, CIDU was close to his heart. He would often regale me with tales of that day’s thread drift and the discussions that had ensued. If he needed an answer to something, I would tell him post it and one of your peeps will know. I’m pretty sure one of you always did.
My sons and I would like to give back in a small way. My youngest is an extremely talented graphic designer. He designs our Hanukah cards every year and I would love to send you one if you’d like. For many of you, this is likely the only Hanukah card you’ll get, so double bonus!
Don’t worry that this is some kind of burden for me, I am already sending out several hundred, more isn’t really an issue. And for those of you interested in supply chain economics, Zachary has found that the cheapest high quality printing is in South Korea! So I get a package from South Korea every year.
Email me at robinbickel at gmail. Put CIDU in the subject line so it will be easy for me to quickly find you. And if you’d like you can send me a card at 43 Peace Rd, Randolph NJ 07869 but you are under no obligation to do so. I like sending cards and it would make me happy to be able to send a very small thank you to all of you who have been such good friends over the years. (Please don’t delay only because I have to give Zachary a count of how many cards to print)
