    Hi Stephen,
    So sorry I was not able to attend your recent Lunch & Learn. My daughter returned to South Africa to wrap up her data collection for her doctoral dissertation in Urban & Regional Planning (Univ. of Mich), and I was swamped with details to get her all set to go.
    Have a great week, and thanks again for offering to host a Lunch & Learn!
