We had a discussion regarding the need to renew our domain name through Clubrunner.  The options were:
 8 years at $24.95 per year or
5       years at $29.95/year or 
3 years at $34.95/year. 
After discussion, the club opted, by acclaim, for the 5 years option. 
 
In the continuing saga of the snow, the Collins’ desires to just avert weather disaster, their neighbors Mike Lepera and Jim Miller, we added yet another chapter at our last meeting.  It seems in the untimely and unusually heavy snowstorm recently past (who ever thinks we could get a foot of snow in late March?) Marge and Ed lost their mailbox post to the snow moving efforts of the road crew.  Obviously Mrs. Collins was interested in getting their mail and is adamant about having a new mail post installed by Ed asap.  Dutiful Ed began the project to correct the situation on a Saturday.  He was unable to finish, but assured Marge the project would be completed the following day. The next day he was just finishing cementing in the post when neighbor Mike came over to help.  It seemed Ed wasn’t using the right cement, Mike had much better hydraulic cement.  So they dug it out and replaced the pole foundation, trued up the pole and all is finished.  Mrs. Collins is impressed.  Ed wanted to take full credit for the install, but had to admit to Marge that Mike helped him.  But all in all, everything is good on Elm Avenue until the next weather calamity.  One last word to Ed; think about how things would have turned out had you had the assistance of neighbor Jim Miller.
