Hi All, I'd suggest that we consider how we answer or respond to fellow chapter members. It's really scary how some of us get jerked off at anytime we try to respond (no one in particular) or give our thoughts and suggestion.
And also I don't think it's wise to respond with a lot of personal feelings especially in such maters like the current financial hiccup. Let's not kill the spirit, we all need each other. (Also no one in particular).
