Folks and Folkesses,

I will join you as soon as I can after participating of an anniversary meal from our friends at Pistachio. Least we can do to keep them in business.

I also have another engagement just before 9 as I waxed lyrical about Jitsi to my Thursday night father's club, and they've all taken to it, so I have to initiate another meeting.

To paraphrase Martin, Zoom was fine when it was just a lolly :)

How spooky is that?!

Enjoy :-)
