    Great meeting this morning. We had several new members. Susie Mikell gave a short overview of many of the great products of Shelf Reliance and Rick Pinelli demonstrated two handheld communication devices that can be used for emergency communication. We hope to provide evening workshops on both topics soon. Because of a lack of time and technical difficulties we decided to start the Introduction to the Constitution discussion at the next Mercury One Memphis meeting which will be 9:00 am Jan 7, 2012 at Panara Bread Co.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
