|The daffodils are up
, we've had SOME sunny and warm weather...the long hibernation is about over. Whew!
The big news here...we're planning to move, back home to Connecticut
(after 25 years in NJ). This will have no impact on the Impactiviti business, since it was designed from the ground up to be "portable" - so you'll notice little if any change (even the phone number will be the same). However, if you do know of anyone looking for a wonderful home in New Jersey: I know just the place
! Both of these links lead to lots of pictures and details...
On with the newsletter....
