The day of the presentation, we were having issues connecting to Daniel. His face is blurred out but you can hear him great. My husband does put a picture of Daniel on the screen so you can see what he actually looks like:)
Many thanks to Daniel Bucko for his wonderful presentation, to David Newman for making this happen and for my husband Gene’s technical assistance.
