Hi there. My name is Jenelle Mead and I have been forced (with much
resistance - "grin") to write our November newsletter. I have recently
taken over Nathan's job as Administration Officer/Accounts, so many of you
will already know me.
With Christmas looming I thought that a few Christmas sites (and some
sites, especially for kids) on the Internet may be of interest. My trusty
"research assistant" Bill and also Sandra, have been very helpful with
their contributions in this area.
I take this opportunity to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
There will however be another newsletter before Christmas.
