WE ARE NOW LIMITED TO 10 INDIVIDUALS WITH CAMERAS, BUT ANY NUMBER CAN WATCH LIVE 'ONE WAY' AND SIT-A-LONG VIA THE ABOVE SCREEN. IF JOINING WITH CAMERA, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR MICROPHONE IS MUTED:

Hi guys.

Sorry I had to shut down my computer but the storm was hardcore. When that happens we'd better unplug everything to prevent a bolt from Thor hitting the house and fry everything.

I'll sit zazenkai tomorrow morning.

Gassho,
