DearREADERS,
We've got four big hangouts scheduled this week. You may watch the archived versions on DearMYRTLE's YouTube Channel, but we suggest registering, even if the event has passed, so you may not only view the video but see all chat comments where we post the links to items we discuss. It's also possible to post comments before during and after a hangout.
