Re: What did you cook tonight?

Quick dinner of sautéed veges and smoked sausage. Nolita fixed the soft boiled eggs and the sliced avocados.

Re: Berserkers Video Meets - Schedule/Info inside

I know there is a lot of WB zoom stuff going on this weekend, between Champagne and Flannery, but I'd be interested in a general WB hangout tomorrow and could set up a Zoom if enough interest is there. Gonna need it after this week on service :P Would probably aim for 6pm PDT. I’d be down for that!
