So, I am on pins and needles wondering how everyone is going to feel about the new look of the paper. Many of you should be opening them now....

I personally, am thrilled, I think it is far easier to read and enjoy - and it's printable right there on your home or small office printer.

I am trying something else that's new - because we are converting so many of our print subscribers over to the electronic paper, we decided to chop the paper into sections for our dial up friends to see how that would work for down loading. It is my hope that it works pretty good for them - again, I can't wait for your feedback!
If you are on high speed you can download your whole paper like normal - if you are on dial up, you can select the sections or down load it all by section - your choice.

If you like this format and are agreeable - I have even figured out how to embed web site links into our advertisers ads! The only thing is that when you click on the ad to go to the web site this little pop up comes up telling you that the document is trying to open a web site link - if you want to go to the site you click OK and if not, you click no. I didn't want to do that yet and freak out those who are not yet comfortable with the internet.

I didn't want to do what I usually do - which is to overwhelm everyone with a whole ton of new stuff all at once! So we'll wait for some feedback from you guys and dolls today...

I am SOOOO tickled pink with our 2010 Show 'n' Shine.

In the news today it appears that two members of the Hells Angels got an early Christmas present. They won't be being tried for assault as the victim says he has nothing to say. The victim is in contempt of court...

Suzuki sold 20% of it's company to VW.   It will be interesting to see what happens with this merging as they will be able to share so many technologies.
