Theme and Word of the Day

Theme:  Clean Out Your Computer Day

Word of the Day:  Deplorable

Adjective: shockingly bad in quality; deserving strong condemnation


Example: My organizational skills are deplorable! I have folders full of email messages from 10 years ago on my computer, but can't find ones from yesterday!


(Hi folks - FYI - I will be unable to attend this evening's meeting - I set my status to "unavailable" as I did not see an area of the agenda (text box or otherwise) where we can "mark" ourselves unable to attend. I see all roles are filled so that's great. I'll miss you guys - have a great meeting and see you next week! Lou)
