Well, here it is - the 'annual' What's What and Who's What of the TVTU blog.....***WORD OF WARNING*** however,  though laden with LINKS and "click here's" you may not get anywhere by clicking. Yes - technology is currently slowing us down! As you may know most of our links and documents are contained on our website. It just so happens our website is being migrated and secured currently. Therefore, until this gets ironed out by folks more technologically advanced than most of us on the board - we're ALL getting errors. So bear with us and visualize the information linked below! [or for actual information contact the folks noted for additional information!]
