Hi all
 
Yesterday I was getting ready to watch a webinar about Scottish Wills when I discovered there was a Scottish conference happening right then.  I started watching and it was excellent and had to make the choice so didn’t see the other webinar.  What is so great now is that you too can watch the whole presentation online – but just for a very short time! 
 
If like us, your Thanksgiving (in Canada!) is without your family physically with you, here’s something to help chase the blues away. 
 
Happy (different) Thanksgiving, Sue Visser
