Lord Thomas, 

I know you're facing a headache with all this meeting
place mess, and I for one, just want to say Thank You
for all the work and time you're putting into it.

I've been in your shoes in very similar mundane
situations and I know it can be stressful.  You are
appreciated, and I'm sure your efforts are recognized,
even if they aren't perhaps heralded as often as one
might like.

As my beloved Grandmother always said, you can't
please everyone, you just have to do the best you can.

With appreciation and gratitude (and thankfulness that
it's not ME that has to scramble for a new meeting
