Re: [IP] MM minilink pointers

Hi Sue Ann

There is a great CGMS group on Yahoo. One of the moderators is Deb 
<email @ redacted> from the IP list. Go ahead and email her if you'd like 
to join. She can tell you how.

Is it warming up in Fairbanks yet? The leaves appeared on some of the trees 
here a couple of days ago. I love that fuzzy green of Spring.
