To ask a questions or make a comment, please use the CHAT button.  We will be happy to entertain any questions as long as they appear in the CHAT button.  On most computers you can find the CHAT button if you roll your mouse or cursor along the bottom of the screen — it looks like a “talk bubble” (like in cartoons).  On some computers, it is on the top and it may look like three dots (…). If you click on the three dots, the word CHAT will appear. Click on “chat” to insert a question to the group.  


For instructions on how to use chat,
