Hi Joe.  I have recently found out that my favorite symbiotic, Z And,
has gone into outburst, and so I was wondering if your network of
astronomers might be interested in doing some observations of this
object.  I think it would be very interesting to see if the 
28 minute oscillation becomes stronger during this outburst,
as it did in 1997.  Also, assuming the amplitude is now larger than
usual because of the outburst, with several nights data one could
get a much better determination of the oscillation period (and possible
changes in it) than I was able to get. 

What do you think?
