"I took your class last  session (Fall 2013) at Calabasas Savvy Seniors.  It was a joyful experience,
and I looked forward to every Monday.  I want to sign up again for the next one (Winter 2014) and recommend it
to a number of my friends.  Your sense of humor and the dynamics between the two of you are "a kick." 
Thank you for entertaining and bringing smiles and interesting information to so many of us."
CAROL HESSLER, 2/14/14
