March 2010 Newsletter
Dear Lincoln Table Members:
Can you believe all the snow we have had since last we talked? Out here in the hinterlands we were up to our you-know-whats in it. It was with great joy that I was welcomed with snow drops and blooming crocus when I went up the drive for the paper this morning. It will get better and better in the next few months. Time to shake off the lethargy of winter and get active this spring.
