Like our new look?
We’re treating our monthly newsletter to a make-over — the full spa package! The new year is the perfect time to take a fresh look at things! 
You will at least look at  Cuba  differently after you read how three of our TTNers traveled there recently. And if you think a real make-over means a face-lift, tell us what you think after reading this month’s “Opinions Please”
Speaking of appearances , don’t miss our full workshop on that​ very ​ topic. And making its debut, our new “Highly Recommended” column with suggestions from a few of our savvy special interest groups. Enjoy​ & Happy New Year​!
