Working Away: Brief Personal Notations & A Personal "Musical Interlude" Hope all Enjoy.....

It has been a very busy night here in #Outsiders as I supported the release a number of notations on Canada and the United States.   This is as the team continued its' daily work on the Daily Twitter Curations.   I also decided to release the Notations on #Canada on Medium and excerpts on it on LinkedIn.
