December 2016 

Dear Electronics Colleague -

Your continued support throughout 2016 is deeply appreciated.  There are many exciting things on the horizon for 2017!

My family is very thankful for a healthy and exciting year.  My son earned his Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do and my daughter has started "point" at her ballet academy.  I was finally talked into volunteering to join my daughter's Nutcracker cast this last week.  You'd think as a stage hand tech or a sound or lighting engineer, but no... I was Mother Ginger.



  

I would like to wish everyone a healthy, happy new year and Merry Christmas!

Best wishes for 2017,

 

Dan Patten aka Patda Zioak (see Star Wars name generator)
