    Hi all-

    I know I have been quiet lately, but I have been stalking now and then. Really, I've just been very busy preparing to move. Tomorrow my family and I take off for Hong Kong, where we'll remain for 2 or 3 years. I'll definitely be back on the board in the near future, but at odd hours of the day.

    The 2 things I'll miss most about living here: my father and my Pats season tickets. Luckily, one will take care of the other for me.

    I want to wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season and thank you for all the wisdom and humor imparted on me this past year. I hope the board is a little less snippy again soon.

    I'll let you know how the Pats look in Beijing next year!

    Patjew/Dave

    I hope you have a great time in Hong Kong. I wish I could have given you a shopping list.

    Thanks to the internet, we'll still have the pleasure of your company.

    The folks I knew who had been assigned there mentioned the air was extra chunky, this is probably a good time to stop trimming nose hair. Enjoy the experience, good thing your season tickets will be taking care of your father.

    I always knew that Jews often opt for Chinese food on Christmas (as one of the few restarants that are open that day)

    But Patjew, you are taking this to a whole new level if you're flying off for Hong Kong tomorrow.

    Best of luck - looking forward to hearing from you and seeing you in the crowd when I'm watching the Patriots play in Bejing next pre-season, while I'm drunk off my ass watching the game here at 7:30am.

    And just remember, there are a BILLION people in China. That means, that over there, even if you're a one in a million kindof guy, there's still a THOUSAND more people just like you.

    Hey David, from what I heard, it's as easy to come up with a minyan in Hong Kong as it is in Rhode Island!

    Have a great trip over and look forward to hearing your observations from over there.

    Good Luck, PJ. Now you get to sample real Chinese food, you know, dishes with duck's feet sticking out of them and fish with the eyeballs looking at ya.

    Here's wishing all the best for you and you family in your new home.

    I turned down an offer to relocate for Hong Kong for 2 years back in 2001. I had just bought a house and with sky-high Silicon Valley prices, there was no way I could rent it out to cover the mortgage and property taxes. Many others in my company have made that move, though, and most of them enjoyed it immensely. The key is that you're bringing your family. I had one colleague who didn't and was miserable. I'm sure it will be an amazing 2+ years for your family and you'll make great friends there that you'll want to visit for years down the road.

    Regards,
    Chris

    P.S. There's an old chinese saying that goes something like, "The chinese will eat anything with four legs except the table." Truer words have never been spoken. You'll find out soon enough.

    Good luck to you and your family,PJ. If you run into any trouble with anyone over there, just tell them this:

    Rodney's coming and HELL is coming with him!

    They won't want to be messing with a friend of Rodney's!:rocker:

    I've also found the phrase "more chins than a Hong Kong phonebook" has come in handy in describing Charlie Weiss, Bill Parcells, and others who's height is not relative to their weight.

    Also, just a little tip re: RayClay's post: over there they just call it "food".
