	Nope.  My suggestion was worded to suggest that the children 
themselves should not be at the meetings and programs and a place for
them should be provided elsewhere.  It was only a suggestion.  I don't
know why the noise was so bad this time.  Most people are considerate
enough to leave gatherings when their kids are crying or whining or noisy.
As a Mom, I've had to do that plenty of times!  As was said on this list
before, I believe, people should be free to make suggestions without 
having folks get all upset.  Sorry.

	Activities for kids and a "sitting"-type service are great ideas
for freeing up parents to attend the adult activities.
