PLUG MUG on January 15, 2018?
« on: January 11, 2019, 02:58:53 pm »
Is there any interesting in having a PLUG MUG on Tuesday next week? Could also do Monday if that is better for people. We haven't had one in quite a while.

I would go on Monday if we get at least 4 people. I can't make it next Tuesday.

For the winter time, perhaps on a Sunday afternoon at around 2 pm, would be good for me, to attend a PLUG Mug.

Doesn't seem to be much interest in tomorrow (Monday) evening. So might as well cancel this one. Do you want to make a new post for a MUG on Sunday, January 20th afternoon, Bill?

I will wait a few days, to see what the weather forecast will be for the Sunday, before I post about having a Mug for Sunday afternoon.

Okay, sounds good. So to be clear, for anyone else reading this, there won't be a MUG tomorrow (Monday, Jan 14) or Tuesday (Tuesday, Jan 15).

OK, the weather is not looking good for this Sunday, to have a PLUG Mug.
Intellicast shows the daytime high will only be -17 C and it will be snowing overnight Saturday and early Sunday morning.

I will wait another week and see what the weather is for Sunday Jan 27.

Sorry to hear that, Bill :( Did you find a good tablet for her?

I was looking at a Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8 inch, at Staples, that was on sale for $179 ($120 off retail) but it went back up to $299, before I made up my mind to buy it.
I will just wait to see if it goes on sale again for $179.
