Memories of food from Tepatitlan

Hi Esperanza,

My father was born in Tepatitlan de Morelos, Jalisco, Mexico. I have
been looking for relatives or someone who may have known his

It is now more fulfilling to see Peggy Delgato's name (example) and know her as a real person that I have met and spoken to. Once the ice is broken, the subsequent activities can be planned with more confidence and with people you "know". For me, it was especially nice to meet Deena Ortiz. We had a common interest and it was nice to share a moment.

A veteran's conversation with Olivia's husband

I had a great conversation with a great guy who was a Vietnam Vet, like myself. I came away with information more valuable than a link to my family. The food was great and the conversations were equally facinating. But Olivia's husband (really great and interesting guy) told me about the VA hospital and registration for the disability benefits. Olivia, please thank him for me.

I've looked at all the messages regarding the SoCal meeting - but
haven't found information regarding the proceedings of the meeting
(except for the wonderful lunch the rest of us missed; excuse me for
drooling). What was the agenda? What things were discussed? Could
someone please share some insights into what went on in the meeting,
