Re: September 4th - First Thursday topics for discussion
- Pamela, Fred,
I appreciate your enthusiasm at our Minciu Sodas lab!
I apologize that our chat room is not working now
I am working on fixing it but it is taking some time.
I will keep you posted.
I suggest you send your Yahoo ID or Skype ID to the list perhaps
people can join you.
