Is there some newsletter-phobia treatment available? Maybe this foray into it with a group will be less scary... I'm still too afraid to even sign up to receive it, but this has moved it up my list a bit...

Too cool!
Articles, I'll think about it.

Having trouble getting to Ann Friend's site... anyone else? Keep getting a warning sign that it's unsecured. Whatever that means.
