Hi Maia,

Please accept my apologies if my mail contributed to what I perceive to 
be a hint of irritation in your mail. I did not realise what had been 
happening and since some considerable time had elapsed since you asked 
for volunteers to distribute the CD's and me volunteering, I sort of 
jumped the gun rather than just asking about what is happening.

Your inputs are really appreciated - there are always those important 
individuals who make things happen and are seldom really appreciated.

Kind regards,
