Just thought I'd add a little more info. about this benefit:

"The River City Brass Band will perform Nov. 16 at a Washington, D.C., reception and dinner to benefit the Pope John Paul II Cultural Center in the nation's capital.

The concert will raise money for the Legacy Fund,. which supports inter-religious inquiry, inter-cultural dialogue and education that promotes human rights, justice and peace."

So hopefully we'll be seeing Queen Rania in Washington on November 16.

Late Wednesday, Gates flew to Jordan, where he met with King Abdullah II and his wife Queen Rania at a conference hall on the shores of the Dead Sea.

Abdullah, an information technology enthusiast who is seeking to have computer learning introduced in all Jordanian schools, briefed Gates on the kingdom's IT industry plans, the king's office said.

Microsoft opened an office in Jordan in 2001. Two years later, it concluded a strategic partnership agreement to accelerate Jordan's IT development

Gates has been very frustrated with the fact the west are not turning out enough good IT engineers. He has said he could hire hundreds immediately. This seems to be a good partnership, with an upside for both Mr. Gates and the Jordanian people!

Lots of new pictures of King Abdullah and Queen Rania

Bundling up
Their Majesties King Abdullah and Queen Rania on Monday gather with Zyoud Basic School for Girls students. King Abdullah and Queen Rania visited the Zyoud Basic School for Boys in Wadi Al Seer, where they distributed coats to schoolchildren in the first to sixth grades. The event started off a campaign to distribute 700,000 coats to children at public, military and UNRWA schools. The King also donated furniture to the schools. The Ministry of Education, meanwhile, will distribute 4,000-5,000 heaters this year to schools around the country. `I am very glad because the King gave us coats as a gift. I like the dark-blue with the Jordanian flag,' sixth grader Issam Harayzeh told The Jordan Times. Boys were given blue coats and girls red.
