    I'm battling a cold and not winning. I need to cancel. Should we reschedule for next Monday with so many canceling? That's assuming that Ricks dessert will last. Thoughts?

      I could throw it in the freezer for a week. It wouldn't be quite as fresh, but should still be good. Otherwise I will be there tonight. Planning to come straight from work so I can wait for the plows to get on top of things.

      Kathy - Hope you feel better soon.

    I am happy to be able to attend next Monday

    Bad news folks - my street has 6"+ and will not be plowed until 9 or 10 p.m. tonight. My car didn't make into my drive so I will be shoveling for awhile but the street itself is definitely NOT good. I'm thinking this needs to be called off or relocated. What does everyone else think? I'm more than willing to host but I'm concerned about everyone's ability to maneuver on this street. Please let me know - thanks!

      It makes sense to postpone. I can't imagine the side streets where anyone else lives being in better shape.

      Will the message go out to those who had to cancel for tonight? Hopefully most will be able to come next week.

    • Kathy

      Yes, I sent the message to anyone that rsvp (both yes and no).

    I'm still planning on coming tonight. I can't make it next Monday. I have chocolate peanut butter bars and a bottle of wine.

    I am going to join with those going over to the other side of the island - the weather is making this a no-go for me tonight.

    If we reschedule for next week I would still love to make it.

    The number of attendees seems to be dropping like, er, flies. I'm still planning on coming.

  • Sue

    IF we get snow as predicted I MAY have to bow out. Will know more late tomorrow afternoon.

    • Sue

      Yeah. I'm going to pass on tonight. See you next month.

      February 17, 2014

    Since this group has expanded a bit, I just want to check if there is anyone allergic to nuts?

    February 13, 2014

    • Jessica

      I love nuts.

      February 13, 2014

    Not a problem for me!

    Are we going to be watching this movie after our discussion?

    January 20, 2014

    • Beth

      I am Ok with this idea. We have watched movies in the past but it gets late doing that. Maybe we could schedule watching the movie on a weekend night. That sounds fun to me. A Friday eve?

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.
