Thank you Ruth: I appreciate receiving these messages. I will let my husband David know about these various meetings. They are all important and very necessary. David and I have spoken about me perhaps taking over the senior division. Just turning 60, sometimes I feel like I am getting olderby the minute. However, you were doing such a great job, I do appreciate all the feedback. I will put these meeting times on my calendar so I won't forget. I'm not sure this have to do with the senior moment, or… Thank you if this anythingThe fact that I need to keep a better calendar of events. Take care, if there's anything that I can do please let me know. RenéeP. S. Please forgive Siri, I need to get a braille keyboard to help me write more efficient messages.

> In order to obtain the best possible sound for these calls, it is recommended that each caller, after dialing in, press star 6 which puts you in a "mute" mode.  You will be able to hear everything during the call but background noise from your location will not disturb others listening in on the conversation.  When you wish to speak and enter the discussion, press star 6 once again and you will be released from the "mute" mode and able to participate.
> 
> It is also highly recommended that each person wishing to speak state his or her name and wait for the moderator to recognize you before speaking.  We can have too many people trying to seek the floor at one time and chaos can occur.  The moderators will do their very best to recognize as many callers as possible however, they will determine the order in which speakers poceed.

By the way, you do not have to be a senior to participate and join in with us. Each call will be about one hour in length. Come join us and learn to Live The Life You Want.
