I trust that medical advice and civic announcements will not have a bearing on the proceedings. We are really on,right? Any precautions you recommend anyways? thanks!

Ramanand said...

"not Dr J": In our wise opinion, we are going ahead with planned schedules and activities. Unless something intervenes in 48 hours, we'll quiz beginning on Sunday morning.

As for precautions: stay healthy and watchful, and don't leave your brain behind - you might need it :-)

[more seriously: a quick check at the usual precautions would not hurt.]
