In celebration of the Russian Orthodox Christmas, the Expedition 14 crew
had off-duty days Jan. 6 and Jan. 7. On Sunday Flight Engineer Mikhail
Tyurin received a 10-minute VIP call from Patriarch Alexis II of the
Russian Orthodox Church.
Despite the days off, the crew conducted its weekly three-hour station
cleaning last Saturday. Flight Engineer Suni Williams made the rounds
servicing laptops. She first performed the regular bi-monthly reboot of
a router and file server and the weekly rebooting of all laptops.
Commander Mike Lopez-Alegria and Williams also continued their weekly
food frequency questionnaires.
Sunday morning Williams conducted a ham radio session with participants
in the Australian Scout Jamboree 2007 at Elmore, Victoria, Australia. On
Monday, she conducted two more sessions - one with the Sherman
Elementary School in Henrietta, N. Y. and the other with the Dilworth
Elementary School in San Jose, Calif.
