No physical meeting again this week. A cold virus got past our defenses, and a pretty mean one at that. I am now leaning decidedly towards staying a “virtual” attendee going forward until further notice.

We’ll be seeing a new member, 

Joe Santiago,

 on Saturday. Welcome, Joe!

See everyone at 5:00 PM PST tomorrow!
