Great invitation Skeeta..my heart and gut tells me we all need to be there.
But, my head tells me there is an air of caution needed from the worlds I
have ben researching for far too many years now. This whole drama is a set

eliminate. So with that in mind perhaps we need to think about smarter
strategies to combat such activity. Steve Hart
