    Wow! We have had a great response to our day with Eric Toensmeier. In fact there are only a few spots left. If you are planning on attending, and have not yet registered, it would be a really good idea to do so. We would hate to have to turn anyone away, but at the same time, stretching too far over 120 people will make the event less enjoyable and beneficial to all. Thanks for your support and see you tomorrow!

    I have to be at a book sales event for my book that day. How lucky to have to choose between 2 great events. Life is good! Mary Guay
    Check out my website and how I am living my retirement. My book is the way I found to help the environment. It should be on Kindle by the end of the week and there will be a link to Kindle on my website.
