2016 Happenings in February

2016 Happenings in February

One of our proofreaders wrote, “HOW do you do it? Each issue is better than the last!!” I wish I could take credit, but I have to say our authors certainly deserve our thanks. Here we are with our mid-winter edition – enjoy this one beside a fireplace, on either side of the River, at a coffee shop near where you work, or if you are lucky, like I am, on a beach!

Open then article and meet our new contributors, see a remarkable historical film and enjoy our February photoraphs.
