Please give me feedback on whether you are able to see them.https://issuu.com/sina-austria/docs/salizanda/1I would also welcome…See More

Hi Peter, How are you? Do you have a portrait of yourself which you could upload to your Profile on the new site? It would be great to replace some of these sinister hooded figures in the Members section! Best wishes, John
