====================================================================== 
 
I didn't send a newsletter out last week because I was in a remote 
locations without internet access and without cell phone service. 
 
Before we get to the news, I'd like to ask a favor.  I've been 
publishing this newsletter for 7 years now, in a vacuum.  I'm not sure 
what sort of information is important to you so I have 2 questions of 
you:
 
1) What would you like to see added to this newsletter? 
2) What would you like to see go away from this newsletter? 
 
Simply click the "reply" button to respond to these questions. 
 
Your input is important to me and I appreciate your response.
