    Thank you, Beth, excellent issue…I echo many of the things you list, including the bartender! 🙂
    My granny always said, gratitude is the key to happiness and longevity in our careers and life. Of course now many studies have proven it so. In any case, you have an abundance of it!!!
    For me, I’m grateful to know you and the people whom you have connected me to this past year!
    Wishing you and all the Otter Talk readers a wonderful Holiday Season!
