EXTRA! EXTRA! Swing Shift Shuffle Gets New Personnel!

Remember that "Special Announcement" I mentioned back on February 21?  Well, here it is.  I am proud to announce that two new workers have joined the Swing Shift Shuffle.  Please join me in welcoming Benjamin (right) and Colleen (left) Taylor to the crew here at the SSS.  I am sure they will make a significant contribution to our efforts here.  I also need to convey my appreciation for and to Mary Alice Taylor, who obviously played a significant role in the recruitment of these new additions, and who works tirelessly behind the scenes here at the SSS to insure that I can try to bring you posts of at least some interest.  B & C will obviously require substantial training, so production at the SSS will be curtailed somewhat for the next few weeks.  Playlists and other occasional posts will appear, but daily postings will cease until later this month.
