Hi Eric and everyone. I missed you all yesterday -- was on my way back into town but you were on my mind. Thanks, Eric, for your sweet comment. It's amazing how quickly I have come to look forward to our discussions. Believe me, not being there left a little sad spot in my heart. Looking forward to seeing you all again next time. A

By the way, another close by landmark is the lakewood church. I hope this helps.

I'm here; any new signups we are glad to have you.
last minute and hope okay..
I forgot I had a baby shower Sunday afternoon. I will see you all next time.
I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow! Note: that some GPSs do not register a Cafe Express at the given location. The location given is correct. If you need an additional marker to find the restaurant, know that it is next to the Starbucks in the same general area.
I will be wearing a red UH polo shirt so look for me if you get there before the group arrives. We usually find some seats in the lobby or back area. Take Care.

After my inquiry into whether to do two or three videos this next Third Sunday event generated so much intense discussion, I have decided to stick with the three video format to best hedge against an uninteresting video getting into the mix. So post your video submissions.

I like some feedback from those attending on whether we should do two or our regular three videos. Some suggested from last meet that three videos was too much, resulting in cutting off of developing ideas during discussion. I think two videos is too short for an hour and a half and will lead to too many beating a dead horse moments. I am curious as to what the attendees prefer?
