    Sorry to bother. I’m leading researchers this week in Salt Lake City and will be obligated to them on April 1. Any chance this recording is available for a few days after?
    If not, I will hope to catch her topic on another zoom.
    Thanks very much, great choice of topics!

      Annette said she is sorry but she may not have the handout ready before the meeting on Saturday. As soon as she sends it I will send out an email to everyone.

        Thank you for checking. If you can put it in the chat during members helping members that would be great. It helps to not have to write everything down.

      Mary, I am seeing your comment about the hand out. Unfortunately, I am late in getting the hand out turn in on time. There will be a handout.
