      Bad timing on the webinar for me, at least...I really wanted to be onboard for it, but I won't be home from work until 6PM Central, so I'll have to miss it.  I'd very much like to be part of the next one, though.
      I suspect part of the issue is the time of the event--Saturday afternoons are very busy for most family types during the fall season.  Just as important, I think, was the relatively short notice for the event taking place.  If it could have been posted a bit earlier, I think people could have planned more in advance to participate--I know I could have traded some shift time in order to be involved.

      Just a reminder Saturday is the webinar... We only have 10 registered, I

      send me an email with the question you have interest in...
