The Bakersfield Chapter met Saturday, Sept 26 in the Starbucks coffee shop at the local Barnes and Noble.  As Mg N. – reading-voraciously reported:  “We chatted and learned.  Desiree K. coached Caralynn R. in using the website.  Carol W. explained why she lives where she does in retirement.  I checked out our compatibility in our books ~ not one member has been higher than about 34% before I checked out my local new best friends.  Every one of them is 41% or higher.  (And they are so very nice ~ thank you, PBS!) We will be meeting again in November before the hectic holidays.”
