Note: There were a lot of "issues" with the wisp email (tahs@thewisp.net). If you are waiting for a response to an email, you may want to re-send it. Many of my emails were lost during their transition to the new formatting. An alternate email account for me is ddm1050@hotmail.com
Many thanks to all of our contributors this month. The MESSAGE BOARD has really been "popping"!
