Many, many thanks - belated by a week - to the brethren of Kentucky for inviting me to speak at their lodge leadership training course in Louisville last Saturday. Thanks especially to Wbro. John Cauley, chairman of the Grand Lodge of Kentucky's Ecucation Committee, for asking me to come down. John's wife gave birth to their first baby just three days before, and he told me he hadn't slept all week. Hopefully my speech gave him a good, solid 30 minutes of deep sleep.
And my deepest gratitude is to the many brethren who attended and gave me such a generous welcome.
