Glad you checked it out. Yes, I'm happy to say Denver did end up getting the 2015 conference after some last minute maneuvers.

I am serving on the Board for the 2015 Conference as Venue Chair and look forward to welcoming HNS to my hometown!

[quote=""MLE""]I don't believe Juana was ever Queen of Spain, [/quote] Not only was she never Queen of Spain, she also never was able to exercise royal authority on her own. Due to her mental instability, she reigned under a series of regencies. She and her husband, Philip of Austria, were crowned j...

11/22/1963

I am chewing my way through Stephen King's "11/22/1963." Since I usually only have time to read while commuting, it is taking me forever to read it. Going on a cruise in a few weeks, should be able to finish it then.
