Calmness of mind does not mean you should stop your activity. Real calmness should be found in activity itself. - Shunro Suzuki

When two people communicate, they each can be enriched - and unlike traditional resources, the more you share the more you have. - U.S. Vice President Al Gore

"Friends and Partners" was announced on the Internet on January 19, 1994, and has an interesting history. Below, you will find a list of links that will provide information on its initial history.

Please visit the new (February 9, 1998) F&P General Bulletin Board for questions, information and discussion about Friends and Partners -- current activities, and plans for improvements.
