I apologize for the thin content in these last two newsletter issues. 2 weeks ago
I ignored everything while I revamped some of the seminar material. Last week my
wife and I attended her 30th HS reunion in Hollywood. Next week is our annual
family camping trip.

Let me know whether you would like to write an article for ET News Journal or if
you have a suggestion for an article.

I'll see you in Happyrock this week.

Have fun!
