Good Morning All!  Well, I'm finally settled enough that I have time to update the blog.  We survived two typhoons - although technically only one actually hit Shanghai hard enough.  We lost a few tree branches on campus but that's about it.  Typhoons in Shanghai are like thunderstorms in Michiga...
