Glad to hear that you all had such a successsful cruise---again. It looks as it the cruisers had a bit more comfortable surroundings for the classes than last year on the NCL Jewel! Tables, even! (Don't get me wrong---We really enjoyed the classes, but we WERE a bit crowded.)

Loved reading your updates on the trip. Glad that you missed the heavy rains in Istanbul that hit shortly before your arrival. It looks as if you had lovely weather for just about all of the time.

Health issues and finances kept me from joining you this year, but I hope that I can join you down-under next year.

And Kaitlyn is adorable. Congratulations to you and your wife.

Have you considered offering these same classes as webinars, put on by yourselves and available to all your Legacy users? I would love to see what's happening with Legacy 7.5 but don't want to go to Santa Clara CA to learn about it. Thanks.

I would also love to see a webinar. Those of us not able to attend in person would really appreciate the help!

A webinar is a great idea! It is becoming more and more popular these days and being in the Silicon Valley, we have so much access to technology. Please post a webinar soon! Thanks.

As a reminder, we did publish two webinars recently at
