Talk tomorrow,



  1. I wish it took place during the day. I’d be much more inclined to head into the city 🙂


  2. New York is a little far away for me at the moment, but this sounds like a wonderful opportunity for those able to attend. I would if I could.


    • Orples,

      I would have liked to have driven up, but with the surgery, A two hour drive wasn’t a good idea. How far away do you live?



      • I live in the Richmond, Virginia area. New York is several states away for me. I have other reasons that make it difficult to travel that far as well.
