Dimensions Newsletter - March 2005
See it’s like this. Your hardworking president is in Disneyland-----really-------and just before she left she e-mailed her extremely powerful Prez Message to me and my computer or at least my server decided that it was so powerful that it considered it a dangerous attachment and deleted it. By the time I knew it our pres. was long gone and ----silly me----I thought that she would be back in plenty of time to get it to me-------Not-----at least I have not heard from her. I’ve tried----yes I have. So maybe she will tell us the powerful thing at the meeting on March 24-----so maybe you should not miss it.
