June Hotline is posted and it’s easier to read!

Click here for the June 2016 edition of Hotline.

Thanks to Dan Weller for some design tweaks. He’s added 2 NEW items to make HOTLINE easier to read

  1. You can  choose to read HOTLINE as a single column version. This means no scrolling up and down on a page to read one Activity report. Try it.
  2. The index is now HOT Linked to each Activity article. This means a single click takes you directly to the page of interest. Return to the front page by clicking INDEX in the footer at the bottom of each page

New Facebook page for Branch 8

Fellow Sirs, I’ve set up a Branch 8 Facebook page. The purpose is to investigate how we can best utilize such a social media outlet. I’ve posted a few different thoughts, including a TED talk about aging and remaining fit – obviously not a choice if we have some underlying disease but perhaps an inspiration for some members.

Click HERE to go to the site at  https://www.facebook.com/sirbr8/?fref=ts    Please try it, add comments, Like it or not, and add your own comments.

It’s free! It’s voluntary! It’s FUN!!
