    Hey Gang,

    Need some ideas fast and desperately...

    As you all know, Santa Cruz is hosting Yoda's World Tour. Right now our little Master is lost in either the France or the Wales Post and haven't heard from him in over a month. (The sender was given the wrong tracking number in Wales). So..anyone have ANY ideas on getting him located. I've even had the suggestion of going with this to Good Morning America and Today Show. One of the reasonings that it's so disheartening is that I teach Special Education and my kids are absolutely devastated... also lost out on a couple of grants for our classroom because he is lost. (No Yoda to Track..No Lessons on World Georgraphy.. No Lessons on Communicating Around the World...No $$ for my kids).

    So anyone have ANY ideas on what we can do to help our brethen in Wales and France work on this (both are trying)....

    I mean, a guy was on GMA this morning over something about paperclips for goodness sakes...and I'm not only wanting Yoda back (very sentimental reasons..) but for my Special Ed kids as well. (and trust me, there are somethings, like getting lost in the post that they just don't understand)...Actually have a couple that will tear up every morning while they go and stare at the map and ask, "Did you find him yet?") I mean this has been EVERY morning since we lost him. I woke up in the middle of the night last night and thought.."Well to quote Yoda.."The mind of a child, truly wonderous it is." So if they have such absolute faith that we will get them back, so do I.. any ideas..any one?"


    Thanks from One Jedi Master and 28 Very Special Younglings

    Seeing as Yoda has not turned up in either location, I'm still proprosing sending a new Yoda. I'm sad that the original Yoda might be lost, but I don't want this tour to end before Yoda even makes it to mainland Europe. :(

    Jos and I were talking about that tonight... I think we should probably go ahead and get a new one and send it on to Germany.

    Still would like the original back. Has either one been able to talk to their respective Posts? Explained to them a bit more?

    Just remember you have to "expose" the new one to the same er, programming, as the other one.

    Kenobi!

    I have a Yoda just like yours. His batteries were removed years ago, not sure what shape he's in really. But we could get him started again from Denver, if you want too.

    Let me know,

    And this time we'll shove a GPS tracker up his...

    *blinks*

    Forgot what I was going to say... and why is that little wrinkled green guy waving his hand frantically at me?

    Odd.

    *shrugs*

    Never mind.

    Shan that would be awsome... The only thing is that he MUST be exposed to Ewan's ...um..."exposure" first. LOL

    We have to keep the same variables in all of this.

    *Now as soon as I get home tonight...back to Velvet Goldmine and more "research.":D

    Master K,

    I can send Yoda to you by way of Qui-Mom, you can subject him to the exact same.... "exposure" and send him on his merry way. All I ask is if I can have him back after his world-wide tour.

    NP, of course you can have him back. (I still want mine back as well.)

    We'll make sure he gets properly... "exposed." LOL

    If he comes back with Donna, I can get to work on a new book then send both Yoda and the book off. :)

    Kim, I say take your story to the press. It's got heart in it and that's what the media is going after right now. Odd stories with heart at the center. Get the little green one some real international publicity and hopefully he will turn up.

    /\ We are going to do that. First we are trying a couple more things to hopefully turn him up. But we have a back-up plan with a second Yoda (thanks to Shan), and Miana is going to be doing recon work with the French Post as we speak.

    Also, have CM's from all over giving ideas on this...

    So, lets be positive...

    [face_praying] :)

    I don't really have any input beyond what is already suggested, but I'll add my hopes that the little guy turns up. And if not, it sounds like you do have alternatives that will enable your kids to continue tracking Yoda...even if it's not the same one! :)

    OMG I just noticed this thread. It is so great that you are teaching your class about world geography this way. It is only a shame not more countrys has joined then - especially between Greece and Malaysia. Hopefully the little fellow will get back on track now with no further problems.

    My kids love it...except since he's been in Wales for so long, my kids now know enough about that country they could probably apply for citizenship! LOL:D

    But it's a great way to teach...(plus its fun for me too!);)

    When you watch, "Velvet Goldmine," remember, "Ziggy Stardust."

    I LOVED Ziggy Stardust. (which is probably the OTHER reason I loved Velvet Goldmine!) :D
