Happy Birthday, Linda!

Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
Counting in dog years
You're three-hundred-and-two!

Or there abouts...
You really deserve a treat!

Ensuring that Jacksonville citizens have access to the best thinking on global issues, the World Affairs Council has two signature speaker series which examine critical current topics with guests who provide more “light than heat,” revealing the stories behind the headlines while delivering balanced perspectives and promoting thoughtful consideration and learning.

New Website at InstantEncore

Free, and it was easy to get a very professional product running in really just a matter of minutes (rather than hours).  It's very easy to share recordings, and a free file storage component also makes storing/sharing pdfs of scores possible.  There is also an almost automatic linking of videos from my youtude account.
