  1. Hi.

    Thanks for the compliment! I try to make it useful for visitors.

    A director is not a bad idea, but would require a lot of work on my part. I’ll “park” the idea and think about it later. 😉


  2. Hi Michael,

    Best wishes of success again for 2018 for your magazine !
    Well informed as usually and a great help for congress people.

    If they need more “local & business assistance” they can always contact me I am working on FEES with a National Group of Consultants & services.

    As you know I am 5 generations from Cannes and have my local office on permanent bases.

    Keep going !
    Best regards,
    Marie-Thérèse and Paulus Potters composer – songwriter & international jazz pianist.
