I've  been thinking of you, Lucinda.  Is school out yet?  We recently 
watched a program on a digital Discovery channel about early population of 
parts of Brazil and the southern tip (name escapes me at the 
moment).  French archaeologists were claiming that descendants of 
Australian aborigines settled Brazil 12 to 15,000 years ago IIRC (anyway, 
it was earlier than the usual 11,000 years that I've read), having crossed 
the Pacific Ocean then,not being content to be on solid ground, hiked 
across the northern tip of South America to settle in the Amazon 
basin.  Then they migrated southward, serving as the Tierra del Fuegan 
"Indians."  I sat there, turned to Chuck and said "this is bullshit. I'm 
changing channels."  Are these French archaeologists (female) as whacko as 
I think, or is it me?  Margaret L
