Next meeting will be on 5 March 2012, as usual at Common Roots (www.commonrootscafe.com) in the Community Room. However, our start time is *NOT* as usual. Our meeting will start at 7:00 PM (the room is reserved by another group until 7:00 PM); figure that the talk will start at 7:30PM. Some of us are likely to be there starting around 6:00 PM to eat dinner, etc.
