February 2018 Newsletter

Hi all,

Welcome to the first newsletter of 2018! I do apologize for no newsletter in January. Long story short I returned from Scotland a few days into January to a lot of work, then I had a family health situation and I was just unable to get to the newsletter. I just had to skip it that month.
