We all offer our heartiest thanks to Vicky Szilagyi, who has dusted us off and polished up our group image. When she launched this blog two years ago, our visibility in the city was enhanced almost instantly. We are new, improved, and fit for the 21st century, thanks to Vicky's vision. Mille grazie!
