Greetings folks . . . The first news of the day is that there were
exactly SEVEN snowflakes fallen on Nashville this morning.

Else, I am passing along an abbreviated invitation for the OS training
in Birmingham (January 26-30) in the hope that you will pass it along to
people you think would benefit from this training. We have reduced the
cost of the registration and have put in our order for a beautiful
weather week at Tine Pines Resort & Conference Center.
