February 1st, 2012
So, apparently I blinked and missed January?! If time continues to pass by this quickly, it'll be 2015 before we know it…which means we can all finally buy hoverboards!! Anyway, Bermuda events:
- The BEPRO Lunch 'N’ Learn Series is back at the Bermuda Chamber of Commerce today from 12 noon until 1pm.

- Thanks to all the money raised by all those hilarious moustaches sported by so many men in Bermuda throughout November, there will be an Afternoon of FREE Health Screening for Men over 40 Years Old tomorrow from noon until 6pm at #6 Shed, Front Street.
