    From The Editor's Desk

    Hi {name},

    October is a great month! We get to celebrate Cephalopod Awareness Days (Cephalopod Awareness Days | Facebook), it's usually the month when we hold our biennial TONMOCONs (Your Facebook page hosts, tonmo and "D"... - The Octopus News Magazine Online | Facebook), not to mention the fact that it has "octo" in its name.

    This year is an "off" year for TONMOCON... but as mentioned on TONMO, I expect we'll have an announcement in December about TONMOCON VII in 2017. Please stay nimble!
    Dun dun dun.... TONMOCon VII

    If you're wondering what happened to issue #164, I migrated servers but had a few hiccups in mail setup. Here's #164 if you missed it:
