    Darn it, Janet, don't strangle me. I over-did yesterday (by necessity) and am very tired and breathless today, Since I'm teaching in the morning, I think I'd better reluctantly bow out for this evening. I'm so sorry! I had looked forward to this and to supper at East Side with you buddies. I'll be interested in hearing all about it. xoxoxoxoxo

    Sorry to cancel, I am not over what ever I had yesterday and while I feel better than yesterday I am not well enough to be in public. Darn!

    Hey ladies, some of us are meeting at East Side Cafe at around 4:30 just across the road from the Thompson Center for an early dinner, glass of wine or whatever. Please join us! Please let me know if you're coming, so I can be sure to reserve us a big enough table.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
