Chariad Launch – July 2013


Dear Friend of CHARIAD: At long last, CHARIAD is being launched today. Frustrating story about the long delay – later. A huge effort was put in by a lot of crew members this past two weeks – in the heat – to get her ready for launch.

My Thanks to You


Dear Friend of CHARIAD: Many of you were kind enough to send me a Happy Birthday note. So many that I am somewhat embarrassed.
