  1. Hi Lori:

    Hope you are well. Thanks for the plug. My chat never happened yesterday. I had technical problems logging in to the server. A reschedule announcement coming shortly.

    Warm regards,

  2. Oh, that stinks. Nothing worse than technical difficulties! Hopefully everyone gets to make the new time. I think it's a great opportunity!
