Anyone interested in doing a 'role call'?

I hope you all don't mind, but I thought this might help keep everyone up to date on where we are and also is a good way to meet everyone.  I sometimes have a difficult time remembering everyone's progress. I would love if you'd all join in & maybe do this periodically to keep us up to date!

Good idea.  I can never remember everybody's info, so it's good to do this occasionally.
