I so appreciate that you are tagging on the Zoom Schedule Carol! It's my reminder to keep that time cleared. It may be a challenge this week, but I'll make sure to not miss the 21st! 

I missed most of these posts and have some reading to do!

Hi Carol! Another great line-up of awesome posts that somehow missed the feature - and Ed's that won the gold - with both a AR feature and yours! I read some but, have a few more to get to. Thank you!

And, I love the line-up for our speakers coming up too! Thom's will be wonderful and I can't WAIT to hear yours! I feel like yours should be able to cover 4 of our meetings! LOL

Thank you so much for the lovely card - we loved it. Happy, happy Sunday to you!

Hi George Souto 
I've noticed that does often happen that the SCS Features get put up on the Big Board. That always makes me feel good to help them get the extra recognition they deserve.

You are probably right. As I've mentioned in a couple of comments above, I'm trying to figure out how to cover 63 days in 45 minutes.  LOL   I'm glad you received the card. I wasn't sure how long it would take to get there.  Have a great week.
