Just when you thought you were safe...
This very crowded month is not becoming less congested.
For example, next Tuesday the 9th, for the omnipresence-challenged like me, has two local meetings, two city-wide presentations and two Brown jazz concerts.
Please don’t hesitate to let me know of any errors or significant omissions (not just ones clearly overlooked for lack of space).

Have a good week,
Dave
