Dang! I wish I would have thought of this earlier, but anyone catching this before they take off today (Sat. Jan 31), if you have anything you're interested in trading or selling, bring it along ... you never know! (I've posted this in the WI gals thread also. Might be too late for today, but maybe something to think about for future gatherings, too.)
When the issue is reduced to 'us' vs 'them' we all lose.
