Best Laid Plans . . .

Dear Subscribers,

 

As can be expect, insert cliché, the best laid plans and so on.

 

There still was a glitch. Let’s hope we have it now.

 

In any case, this will be the first real Newsletter in a long time, More to follow. I can now (I hope) send one Newsletter a day to all subscribers. So without further ado, I will get to it.

 

Thanks for your patience,

Hardy 

 
 
All in Order at Last

Dear Subscribers,

 

Thank you for your patience. Ron and I have worked out all of the problems I have had with mailing Newsletters since the end of July. In addition, I have upgraded my service with Google to commercial status and will be paying so that all of the Newsletters I send out on one day will get delivered that day and delivered more expeditiously than previously.

 

As you can imagine I have many, many submissions to catch up with because I have not been able to mail since the end of September. Rather than sending one enormous Newsletter I have decided to send several smaller ones over the next few days.

 

On the up side, the down time came as I was having another extensive operation on the nerves in my leg, foot, and ankle from which I continue to recover. 

 

By way of explanation, I am sending this out by itself and will begin clearing my inbox mailing Newsletters beginning tomorrow or Sunday. So this message will act as a clarification and a final test to insure all is indeed in order.

 

Thank you again for your patience,

Hardy Cook
