FROM THE EDITOR
I have to apologize for your not receiving the AEL by email last week – though, since no one queried it, perhaps you didn’t notice.
I had put it all together but, when I tried to send it, a glitch at my server didn’t allow the mails to go through.
We were able to put it on to the website, but I wasn’t able to get the mail problem resolved until the end of the week.


Events on now, or starting on or before 1 April 2015
