Vickie and I are safely back home in Ontario at Harmony Ranch.

It's not at all like warm, sunny Port Charlotte but at least the snow

has gone.  Can't thank you enough for the warmth and good times

we shared with everyone for the past 6 months.

Keep singing every day.   More important use your learning tracks

and don't sing - just listen while you sing silently and follow the notes.

We've all got some great fun times ahead.  

Looking forward to November.  

Keep in touch and let me know what's happening.
