As you'll see, I'm belatedly catching up on your mail.  ;->  OK, so March
4th _does_ work for you, and all our scheduling headaches of the moment are
fully resolved.  Good!  

Item 1:  Youg mentioned two possibilities for the exact title of your talk, and you 
have lots of time to tell us which one you prefer.  But please let us know.

Item 2:  As you'll see from the January meeting announcement, we'll need to
write 1-2 sentences or so of description, detailing what your talk is about.  
In our experience, this is an important part of the talk announcement, as
many people make impulsive judgements about whether to attend or not based
on whether a talk sounds interesting.  Even though you might expect people

Also, it's traditional to include 1-2 sentences about the speaker himself or
herself.  This would be whatever you want to say about yourself.
