As we get ever closer to the start of our tenth year (yes, it's been that long) we thought it would be fun to author a blog.
This is a place both to share news of our exciting tenth year activities as well as reminiscing. We will also add non-Tonic events that you might find interesting.
We hope it will work better than FaceBook as everyone has access to this blog, but please restrict your comments to relevant topics.
