thanks to all

  My apologies to all for not being able to be there for today's call, 
and my thanks to all who helped cover for me - especially Sandro for 
stepping in as chair - from what I heard he did great.
  The decision to request CR is an important one, and I want to thank 
everyone for the cordial way the process has been moving and for the 
respect you've shown  to each other, and to OWL, during what could 
have been a very fractious time.
   Thanks to all, and I'm heading home for a beer - hope you'll all 
virtually join me for the celebration of this decision (and let's 
hope the Director says "yes" to our request, at which point we can 
really celebrate!)
