Dear Edward,

Thank you for your reply and those links. I will follow those up, and shall
let you know how I get on.

Dear Mez,

I am smiling broadly at seeing your reply -- nice to know you read this
list too. I have been digesting your comments sent by email. It's a new
year now and Rich and Pam from Hedera Felix have been meeting with me
recently to discuss the two festivals we're going to be at this year. It's
possible that we could present SisM at one or even both festivals, tech
notwithstanding. I'll be emailing shortly. :)

Best wishes and a Happy New Year to you both

Simone
