I look forward to hearing what Andrew Mooers | 207.532.6573 has to say.  He gave me a great tip a while back that I have yet to utilize but I definitely should make time to put it in action.

Spread the word around the AR circuit that Monday morning at 9AM I am on jury duty with no idea of what Tuesday at 2PM slot is going to look like. Sorry guys, duty calls. But a back up, I just found out late Friday and we need to plan for a plan B or just shift me to a little ways further down the calendar Brian England .

Need a plan "B" for this Tuesday's ZOOM. Yours truely has jury duty Monday morning and no idea what the Tuesday ZOOM 2PM slot looks like. Just learned I have jury duty  next week. Have been on juries before, sometimes they get settled out of court, plea bargains happen, other times they get bogged down with deliberations. Anyyone in the audience that has served on a jury knows the drill. Need to have a plan B or maybe the Holiday AR party with egg nog and festive pies and home made baked goods are how the hour is filled. Will update when can as next week's schedule is known.

You've really hit on some great posts this week ( at least judging from the titles).  I am looking forward to reading them. Thank you so much, Carol. I plan to return in January and start contributing again. Feel like a slacker. ;)  Have a wonderful day. D

Carol interesting that one of your choices this week is on YouTube videos, and our speaker for our ActiveRain Weekly ZOOM Meeting presentation is on YouTube.  I will have to read this blog in preparation for Tuesday's meeting.

HI Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist 
Yes, it's always nice to highlight some of the lesser known members. Maybe it will encourage them to contribute more often.
