This week was an up and down week. It does appear that RSVP will have a new home soon. As soon as I know the address I will let everyone know. The phone number will remain the same, 775-289-6323 or fax 775-289-3310.

I did attend the open house at the airport. James Adams and Mike Coster both gave tours that were very interesting.

Now we are on our way to Carson City for an RSVP Seminar. This should be a fun time. I get to meet all the people that are now only voices on the phone.

Learning is finding out

What you already know.

Return doing is demonstrating

that you knew it.

teaching is reminding

others that they knew it

just as well as you.

you are all learners, doers, teachers.
