    My wife, Ann-Marie, has just made a lot of home-made Christmas cookies from scratch. She made 13 different recipes from 50 lbs. of flour and 35 lbs. of sugar. I'm up to my eyeballs in cookies. I will bring a large assortment of her cookies for the meeting with the proviso you folks must eat all of them or take them home. I don't want to return home with any cookies. PS: All the recipes are from the Internet -- the wonders of the web at Christmas time!

    Change of plans!! CoWork has contractors coming in on Saturday to paint the foyer floors so we won't be able to access. :( Some can't make it Sunday instead so I'm thinking of rescheduling this for Saturday December 13th. Any oppositions?

  • Alison F.

    CoWork is confirmed location. I'll see you all around noon on Saturday!
