Thanks for sharing, Terry.

Celebrate Pepys' 378th birthday in Upperville, VA
Andrew Hamilton writes about a meeting in March…In the event, Michael, Andrew and I were there, along with a hearty handful of non-posting Pepysians and friends.
Thanks to Michael Robinson, we have arranged March 13 at 5 PM at the Hunter’s Head [Tavern] in Upperville, Va., as a time and place to celebrate Sam’s 378th birthday. So far Todd Bernhardt and wife and Rex Gordon have accepted, along with several of my family, Michael and myself. We cordially invite other Pepysians to join us in a venison pasty and a toast to Sam. RSVP to Andrew Hamilton at jahamiltonjr@... before Feb. 23 so we can be sure of adequate provender.
So, if you’re able to get there, drop Andrew a line!
The plan was for Andrew to Skype Phil in the UK so Phil could join us electronically. Turned out the WiFi signal where we were was insufficient for that, but Andrew and Phil did exchange several emails.
It was, in any case, about the meal together and the fellowship afterwards.

There were toasts to Sam and Phil and there were other toasts!
