  1. We tend to take you for granted, Ruth. You continue to do a wonderful job and I don’t know where we’d be without you. Thanks for everything. Regards,

  2. Hi Ruth

    Thanks for posting – when you press details for The Lark Descending 10 May it takes you to google mail page and data? Can you kindly redo?

    Thanks 🙂
