As is now a yearly event around this time of the year, due to the
holidays, many of our members are often away from the group for prolonged
periods of time.  I too will be away from Dec 19 to about Jan 13 or so.
In the middle, I will try to log onto a computer and check up on the
activities of the group but I a m not sure how feasible this will be.

the increased activity from some of our members who are not generally very
vocal.  I am hoping that into the new year, this will become a growing
	We have survived a fairly difficult year in that many of our
consistent and founding members had to leave the group for long periods of
time.  I am encouraged that we managed to stay together and keep
discussing Ghantasala.  So, to all of you, I would like to wish a most
happy New Year and holiday season and in my absence and the absence of
other members, please keep up the activity.
