    To those who attended the recent NELG meeting in Sturbridge: Did you leave behind a very nice Yeti mug? If so, I have it and will bring it to Retreat or otherwise work to get it back to you.

    Anyone interested in a visit to a flax exhibit? A New England flax production story, particularly.

    I can't tell from here how long the exhibit is intended to run, I'll send off an email. And I'll ask if they might have any opportunities for a small group visit maybe.
