TFT Kathy here – I refreshed my page at  9:55 a.m. Pacific Time and the show announcement magically appeared – long enough for me to read it before the site crashed for an hour!  The demand for PJ in Toronto & Chi is crazy high! Smart of the Ten Club to try publishing  the post a wee bit early to keep the site from going down…keeps us on our toes!   Enjoy all who are going.
