I know with the odd transition and temporary shutdown of the Lowdown a while ago that we lost a number of our members. We are a pretty slim group these days in terms of participation, and that's neither a good nor bad thing. It's a reality of the current state of online communication methodologies and trends. To lament the slimming down of the Lowdown is akin to lamenting inclement weather.

My Holiday Wish to all of you is for each and every one of you to find the pocket and stay in it, to enjoy playing and not playing, and most of all, to stay healthy and safe in this very unhealthy and dangerous world.
