    I wish I could watch it but sadly I’m in error. So will someone kindly tell me about what was said. Thanks.

    • Do you mean the video did not work for you, Kim? What happened? The video works for me but it is very slow to stream because of my poor Internet connection.

      I’ve been thinking about creating a transcript of this, which would help of course.
