October 1999

It's Thanksgiving Day in Canada on Monday October 11th and Columbus Day in the USA on the same day. I received a letter from my friend Christopher Chase in Japan asking me how we should celebrate Columbus Day and I really have mixed feelings about this historic figure. When I was growing up, he was a hero in all the history books. Then lately, we found out how devastating his discovery of the new world really was. I don't know how to feel about the fact that in some bizarre way, I am one of his descendants. Columbus is the anglicized version of Colombo.

WOW Zone has had the honor of receiving distinguished visitors from the Government of Canada, USA, Australia and Singapore, as well as royalty of the business and entertainment world: Microsoft, Lotus, IBM, Turner, and Disney, to name a few. Thank you, we're flattered! Please visit again soon!

We received a Special Request from Russia. Please note that although the "Special Requests" may not be fun reading, they are REAL. They are posted because we believe that with the amount of people passing through WOW Zone every day, there may be someone out there who will be able to help. If you can help, please do so, or if you have a Special Request, please send it in.

Halloween decorations are everywhere, and soon the little ones will come knocking on our doors for treats. Are you prepared? In addition to your generous sweets, give them something extra special this year. Give them the gift of WOW. Tell them you Wish Only Well and invite them to visit www.wowzone.com. It may become the most important tool in their life. Let's show our kids how to live in harmony.

Selected stories and poetry from the WOW Zone site are currently being compiled into booklets that will make wonderful gifts for yourself and for friends and loved ones. I'll let you know as soon as they're ready.

Thank you all for visiting, especially those who check in regularly. I know some of you do since the very beginning, over three years ago. Stick around, the best is yet to come!

Wishing Only Well,

Carmen Colombo
