Okay, the election's over, so everyone take a couple of days to reacquaint yourselves with your family and pets, then everyone meets back here for 2012. But you know where to go to relax: Drinking Liberally. Am I right?
Yet again, the first of the month snuck up on me. So tonight I send my sheepish apologies again to Ann and everyone at DL/Corvallis, who will just about be winding up tonight's meeting as I finally get this drafted last night. (Consider this the early promotion for the December Corvallis meeting: First Thursday of the month, address and time below!)
