After January, February, March & April’s newsletters this has been a very busy year so far in “Delta land” (and a good chance for you to catch-up if new to the blog what you have missed). I am looking forward to the new Delta museum that is now OPEN and would like to go but don’t think I can work it in. I will make time to go soon. – René
