Hello Pat was set up to come to the Thai group this evening to meet you. Then I had two baby goats born. The donkey I had bought to protect them attacked the first born. Trying to ressucitate her. She took some milk and is on my couch. Then i could of handled just that one. I have two sows getting ready to give birth looks like tonight or tomorrow so i had to seperate them from the others. Needless to say tings pushed me past my time limits. I apologize for not being able to get there. Doug

It'd be nice to have one here in NH that's close by. The closest ones are 30 miles away or further. Good luck with your meet up group.

Hey Pat, We are coming home from FL that day. Trust me nobody wants my super crancky baby in a resturant at 7:30 8:00 at night. It wouldn't be pretty.

Hey Pat! Not sure how to rsvp to the event/gathering tomorrow but wanted to tell you that I think the timing is perfect. I have plans tomorrow but just had to tell you if possible to try gatherings again at that time of day b/c it's perfect for me. It's not easy for me to go in the evenings so the daytime gatherings work better. I truly hope to attend a gathering soon! I can't wait to meet some of the holistic website members. I try to follow it when I can and it's very interesting to me. Thanks again!

We have only two folks RSVP'd to come tonight. I hope that others will join us. My husband comes home early so that I can attend. But, if we are going to have limited participation, I'd rather cancel the gathering in advance.What are your thoughts? Are the days, times, frequencies an issue? Same with the MNO?Thanks, PatSee More
